I can get ink off my hands...

I discovered something amazing the other day that I thought I'd share.

Sometimes in the course of printing I make some silly mistake and get ink on my hands. Those of you who have worked with letterpress ink, or other similar messes, know that it is difficult to clean up off your skin. I have, in the past, thrown caution to the wind and used California Wash... but I get the feeling that it's not such a good idea.

Enter, Witch Hazel. I use it on my face nightly, and the other day I had the idea to try it on the ink on my hands. It worked! Not as well as the toxic cleaners, but it worked!
