Bought a tube of that stuff... doesn't seem to do anything for me :( wasn't cheap.

Conversely,... Amodex is what I reach for when there are ink stains on pens, fabric, furniture & myself.  Sometimes it takes two applications for Amodex to be effective. 

Most of my inks are not particularly saturated anyways (thus not having greater dye load), as I love shading inks.

 

As others may have said before, the stains on your fingers is a badge of honour among pen folk, but that badge does not extend to fine furniture & the like.....

I previously have used Amodex and it works ok on inky hands...however...I recently purchased Ink Zap from Anderson Pens and it's the best ink remover I've ever found for hands. It comes in a five ounce jar.

For my desk, I just wipe it off with a damp paper towel. My desk finish is sealed. However, if your desk is bare wood the ink will be absorbed and the desk permanently dyed.
