Depends in large part on the type of ink; I suspect that the "hairspray" remedy probably only works on ballpoint and/or marker ink. Anybody's guess on offset, letterpress, or mimeo ink (all of which are very similar to artist's oil paint), or ink-jet ink (edible or otherwise).

Fountain pen ink (which I alluded to on the last page) is a water-based solution of various dyes, and not terribly likely to respond to hairspray.

Thanks hbquikcomjames - it is for ballpoint pen......the 2 yr old has drawn over the side of the suede couch. Am pretty sure it is not real suede as it was only a cheapy.....think I may give it a try, does not matter too much as couch is old and we are waiting till kids are a bit older until we get a better quality one. Thanks for your reply icon_smile.gif

Yes. When I get fountain pen ink on my fingers, the stain generally goes away by itself within a few hours. If, on the other hand, the cap on one of my fountain pens unscrews spontaneously in my breast pocket, without my noticing until too late, and it's not a washable color, I generally end up applying a few drops of undiluted laundry bleach to the spot.

Of course you use the unscented ones - I think of it this way, if it is deemed safe to be put on a newborn babies skin (which yes, IS absorbent - things DO transfer through the skin - and rigorous testing is performed before these are allowed on the market) then I feel it is safe to do a quick pass over the fondant

The colour you are wiping off with it is probably MORE damaging icon_surprised.gif

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ THE BABYWIPES CONTAINER.

The brands that I have seen all say "not for internal consumption" or some such along with all the chemicals that are included.

NONE OF THAT STUFF SHOULD EVER EVER EVER TOUCH A CAKE.

To get smudged colour off a cake, you use EDIBLE remedies like vodka, food grade glycerine, water, cornstarch, piping gel, corn syrup...

If all else fails, maybe you can get a couple of friends to also apply blue on their faces and you can pretend to be Blue Man Group.

OK - maybe I should have said.... IF you are in Australia (wich the person that enquiring was) it is perfectly safe to use the baby wipes that we purchase here (unscented ones) Our regulatory bodies ensure that there are NO chemicals in things that you would use on a newborn - they are hypo-allergenic, alcohol free and first ingredient is WATER folowed by Glycerine & citric acid .... so YES - probably a convenient packaged form of what you suggest.

Of course it says ... not for human consumption - they mean ... Don't EAT the wipes icon_smile.gif

Australia is regulated far more stringently than most other countries - and these sorts of products have to pass Pharmacuetical type testing (anything for babies)

Oops - so sorry Unlimited.....I was not ignoring you, I did not see you post. Thank you for the link I will check it out. thumbs_up.gif

Lol - Pam.....I am here in Oz so that is good......promise not to eat the wipes or feed them to my children icon_wink.gif. I do currently use the Decorators Rose Spirits.....well I had a full bottle, brand new and then dropped it. I am assuming this is just the same as using Vodka as I brought a little bottle to use for is purpose.... I was just very curious about the baby wipes though as I had not heard this before.

I test edible inks and constantly have gobs of food coloring on my hands arms face...just depends on the day. What I have noticed is that once I take a shower, it all disappears. No matter how many times I wash my hands using whatever I happen to have around, its not till the shower that it decides to disappear!!!
