  1. You can tell it’s been a good day at our London Pen Club meetings when your fingers are good and inky! What you want for cleaning inky fingers is ReDuRan Hand Cleaner; I was gifted a 4 ounce tube years ago, it works great and a little goes a long way, my tube is still pretty full. ReDuRan can be purchased on Amazon.ca for about $15.

    • I’ve never heard of this, but I will definitely need to invest in some – it’s like I have a pen meeting everyday 🙂 Thanks for the tip, Rick!

      And I hope you make it back to our neck of the woods for another Jays’ game soon!

    I found a common biodegradable household cleaner BON AMI will easily remove some of the most difficult stains like turmeric spice, beet juice, and ink. You can purchase it in most grocery stores. It always helps to lubricate ones fingers before playing with ink – the stain will not set as quickly.

    I find your articles inspiring.
    Thank you

      Great tip! I will have to look into trying it out myself – I’m always looking for a way to make my hands look less battered 🙂

    Old-school Boraxo powdered soap feels scratchy and kind of gross, but it’s been removing tough dirt and stains from hands, for over 100 years. I bought a can of it in a Buffalo, NY supermarket, a couple of years ago, and it works!

    In my office, there’s a container of No-Name disinfecting wipes by my desk. They’re pretty good at cleaning inky fingers too, but you have to work at it for a while.

      Thanks for sharing two great tips! Now that we’ve had babies, I’ve also found that baby wipes are terrific for most inky stains on fingers. Oh, what we’ll do for the pens we love!
