Well, according to Mr DIY, there just might be a way for you to effectively remove these ink marks

Although the tip was shared in a Facebook post last month, it's still trending until today with over 17,000 reactions and 631 shares. 

And of course, the Internet had to have a little fun with it. Some asked if the toothpaste tip could be applied to their own face.

If you or your kid ever gets their fingers superglued together, you could try this method to pry it apart:
