Toothpaste: even the toothpaste can be useful to remove ink stains. We prefer the white toothpaste that is placed on the stains and left to work for a few minutes and then rubbed with a toothbrush (like the manicure) on the stains it acts well.
Oil: you can try either the moisturizing oil that is used on the skin of children, or alternatively the olive oil that we all have at home. Placing on a cotton pad we will be able to eliminate a good part of the ink
