Proper storage and handling is important to ensure the best performance and longevity of water-based inks.

First, it’s important to store water-based inks in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat. It’s also important to keep the ink containers tightly sealed when not in use to prevent drying out by evaporation and contamination from the ingress of pathogens…..the flipside of having an eco-friendly product.

When handling any ink product, it’s recommended to wear gloves to prevent direct contact with the skin, especially for prolonged periods. Additionally, it’s important to avoid cross-contamination by using separate spatulas and containers for different ink colours.

Thorough cleaning of spatulas and other equipment after use is also critical to prevent any cross contamination. The use of hot water and appropriate hygiene measures will also go a long way to ensure minimum wastage through biological contamination.
