Dearest Visitors & Members of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

 

Please welcome our latest addition to the team, the great lapis!

 

He will concern himself mostly with the Ink Reviews Index, working in tandem with saskia_madding, and providing a helping hand mostly in the Inky forums.

 

Triple cheers for lapis!

 

Warmest regards, Wim

Hey Mike, good to have you around for the wet stuff.

 

One advice: a scotch-brite pad with dishwashing soap works well in removing the ink stains from your hands.

 

For ink stains in clothes, try soaking the stain in milk/cream.

Actually, what I find works best for cleaning ink stained hands without using any abrasives :), is washing one's hair. All gone in less than 2 minutes (with my mostly lack of hair anyway ;)).

Warm regards, Wim

Thanks for those very practical "habits", too. As far as the shampoo is concerned, I remember hearing that quite often here, so I'm sure it works. But I've not yet even tried it out. I think if I did, my wife would ask me if I'm feeling sick. If my hands (or shirts) never had ink on them, people would ask me if something had gone wrong....

I am wearing latex gloves these days when working on nibs etc., as by now it occasionally upsets my alter ego if I have inky hands etc. a little too often, at the wrong time and wrong place ;).

Warm regards, Wim

Well, that solution leaves me out.  :rolleyes:

Well, that's true. too and "Okay, I'll admit it" but I often use dispensable medical latex gloves but sometimes to keep my nibs and inks clean (like after having worked out in the garden or cooking roast turkey) . Since years now, I wash everything in the kitchen sink. My wooden floor and old oak desk have something against inks. But I can understand them.

Thanks, everybody. Keeping the INDEX OF INK REVIEWS up to date is my first love, a bit of a continuous chore but a lot of fun and something which I think a few ink collectors don't mind using.
