    I had some deliveries today, and one of them was a black ink cartridge for my printer. Bess never normally takes things off the table, but I removed the other stuff and forgot about the cartridge.

    I came back into the kitchen to find something chewed up. Yup, the new ink cartridge which is just paid £9 for!

    Worse, when I went to pick it up black ink spilled out all over my hands. AND IT WON'T COME OFF!

    Luckily Bess hadn't got any in her mouth, but my fingers are stained and I don't know what to use to remove it. :mad:

    She could have ate the empty boxes I'd also left out. But no.....

    Erm not sure about your hands (although it should fade after a few hrs/days) but Betty chewed a Biro the other day and got black ink on my carpet. Its not completely out but Surgical Spirit lifted the vast majority of it. Maybe that will help.

    Try hairspray...spray it on and then let it dry and then wipe with a baby wipe and you could try putting some baby oil on a cotton pad and wiping your hands

    If its a compatible then water should do it if its something such as epson durabrite then that is alcohol based so try WD40.

    I had visions of seeing Bessie covered in printer ink after reading the title! Hope you've managed to get it off you though:)

    Funnily enough I had a shower but it didn't go. I use macadamia oil on my hair before I dry it. - and hey presto, it's all gone! :D

    Don't know what that says for what it does to my hair though.
