Ink jet / Bubble Jet printers use inks that are highly water soluble.
Anything that looks like a laser print should be tested--it may not be.
Even some photocopies are suspect, as some plain-paper fax machines (which
commonly use inkjets) are often used as copiers in small offices and
domestic situations. Beware!
