Does nail polish remover get rid of pen ink? Did you know that nail polish remover will remove more than just nail polish? If you have ink stains on your hands (that didn’t come off with soap and water), apply some nail polish remover to a cotton ball and gently wipe the ink off your hands. As soon as the ink stains are gone, wash your hands with soap and water.
What is the easiest way to remove pen ink? Use acetone to erase ink.
Most nail polish remover is made of acetone, and this can be used to remove ink from paper. Apply a small amount of acetone to a cotton swab, and rub into the ink you’re trying to erase. This works best on regular ballpoint pen ink. Blue ink is more easily erased than black ink.
How do you remove dried pen ink? Squirt alcohol-based hand sanitizer gel directly on the stain. Use enough to saturate the stain. This will start to break up the ink, and you will see the stain begin to lighten. Let the hand sanitizer gel stay on the ink for a few minutes before continuing.
Can gel pen ink be removed? To start removing gel pen from fabric, place paper towels or an old rag underneath the stained area and pour on your choice of rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, clear nail polish remover or acetone. Fully saturate the stain with the solvent and let it sit for five to 10 minutes before rinsing with water.
