Easily Remove Stain From Your Hands


One of the pitfalls of staining is using the wrong type of glove or skipping the gloves altogether (I prefer staining without gloves). Luckily, there is an easy way to get the stain of without destroying your hands.
** I wanted to add that I have used coconut oil based upon the suggestions and it does work pretty well. I still have to follow it up with the Palmolive to get the stain out of the nail beds but all-in-all, it works well.

Remember those Palmolive commercials where they talk about being tough on grease? Turns out, it's true. All you need to do is lather up really well with the Palmolive, grab a loofah or sponge, scrub a little and voila....

I feel like I should add that I've used other dish soaps in the past, and Palmolive works best. Also, Palmolive doesn't dry out my hands like the others. Do you have a secret (chemical-free) trick for removing stain from your hands?

    How can I remove dried acrylic paint from a blouse?

      It may depend on the type of material but this is my suggestion. Soak the stain in Parmolive dishwashing liquid, then scrub with a nail brush and rinse. Repeat as needed. Soak for longer perhaps. Works on most paintbrushes too. I got dried paint off some kids brushes by soaking for several days. It's worth a try.

    An ink pen broke in my purse. How do you get ink off of the leather?

      For ball point ink, I have used old fashioned Aqua Net hair spray, then immediately blot. Maybe test the spray on a hidden area first?

    I thought that stuff could kill fleas AND save the world!! I’m only joking 🙃 of course but, this was the first thing “painted” in my mind!!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I find that doing a sink or two of dishes afterwards gets the final stubborn stains off. Moisturize afterwards.
