    So grateful for the recommendation of Gloves in a Bottle. What a relief! My hands get so dry when I’m working with alcohol and inks. That barrier lotion has saved them. Hooray!!! I haven’t had the opportunity to try the baking soda and Dawn yet (because of the Gloves in a Bottle). I actually had an inkjet ink cartridge (magenta) explode all over my hands and 90% of it washed right off. Thank you so much for sharing that tip.
