Ink on Carpet

As I had just finished refilling the cartridge for my printer I managed somehow to knock it off the desk & on trying to catch it the ink covered my hand and dripped all over the carpet.
First things first put cartridge in bin and went to wash my hand, ink would not come off with soap or white spirit then tried turpentine, useless then I remembered a house hold product that I used to remove stains from a white kitchen worktop Cillit Bang I have two types one for limescale which works great on worktops but seems no good on ink & the other type that has bleach which I am pleased to say removed the ink quickly from my hand & the carpet(do not use bleach type on work tops as it seems to leave dull marks ).

There you go two lessons in one, how to clean a white worktop & how to remove ink from hands & carpet.
