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....
Clean hands!
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?

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

    The Palmolive- is it a washing liquid? I came across an article where the author used Palmolive to remove grease stain on the wall behind the cooker.

    Have you tried oil free eye make up remover by Mary Kay. Takes ink out of clothes or skin and took deck stain specks off my arms and face! Staining over your head can be messy!

    Just dip your hands in paint thinner. Rub well and dry with a paper towel. Then wash your hands. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist.

      Very caustic. Most women have softer hands, so I do not suggest this. Hand lotions works wonders and you won't have peeling skin.

    I use Mr.Clean magic erasers, I was amazed it took the paint right off of my hands and nails.

      Hand lotion has never failed me. Just rub your hands with lotion really well, wipe with a paper towel. Then wash with Dawn dish detergent.
