The easiest way to remove the paint is with a solvent. Therefore, if you often deal with it, it is worth keeping white spirit in the apartment. This is the most common solution and will help remove most types of pigment. Thinners B-646, 647, 650 and P-12 may also be useful. The cleaning mechanism is simple: take a cloth or cotton pad, soak it in liquid and gently wipe the skin.
If white spirit is not at hand, then other means may come in handy. For example, acetone-based nail polish remover. This substance is excellent at removing paint. Sunflower oil will also help, with its help it is easy to wipe off enamel or acrylic paint.
Another option is to use abrasive substances, such as salt, sugar or soda. They need to thoroughly rub the spots on the hands. However, the method is not very safe, mechanical cleaning can damage the skin of the hands. After any of the methods, it is necessary to apply a cream to avoid severe irritation.
2 The smell of fish
It is better to cut fish with gloves, but not all housewives follow this advice, since it is much more convenient to do everything with your hands without protection. The persistent smell of fish after such work can remain on the skin for a long time. Citric acid or just lemon will help remove it. Wipe your hands with its juice and leave to dry completely. After that, you just need to wash your hands with soap.
Another option is to use 9% vinegar. Take a spoonful of the product and dilute it in 1 liter of water. Then wash your hands in it. It can also be used for any other items that smell of fish.
It is worth keeping a special soap in the kitchen that kills odors. It is useful when cooking using any aromatic ingredients.
3. Beets and carrots
Beetroot and carrot juices are bright dyes that are difficult to wash off with plain water. After cleaning and cutting vegetables, stains remain on the hands, especially near the nails. To scrub them, you need any substance with an acidic environment. For example, you can use apples or lemons. Packed apple juice is also suitable.
In addition to juice, you can use vinegar. However, it must be diluted in water, otherwise you can get irritation.
four Silicone sealant
If the sealant has not had time to dry, but has already seized, laundry soap and a plastic bag will help to remove it. Rub the bag in your hands, the substance should stick to it. Wash your hands with soap and water afterwards.
If the substance has become completely solid, then use 9% vinegar. It dissolves the sealant well. You will need a 1:1 solution of water and vinegar, wash your hands in it. Then rinse them in clean water.
If all else fails, then you will have to clean your hands with a pumice stone. To do this, make a bath with hot water, put your hands in it and let the skin get wet. The sealant will also become softer. Then wipe it off mechanically.
5 Hair dye
Fresh stains from hair dye can be washed off with any soap. For example, laundry soap, shampoo or dishwashing liquid. You need to act as follows: add a little product to warm water, and then wipe the stains from the skin with a cotton pad moistened with a solution.
If the paint is dry, then you should turn to stronger means. For example, alcohol or acetone. Saturate a cloth or cotton with liquid and apply to the stain for a short time. After a few seconds, try to clean the dirt. You can repeat the procedure until the paint disappears from the skin.
There is another remedy that does not irritate the hands as much as the others — this is any oil. Take what is in the kitchen. Soak a cotton ball in it, rub the paint stains with it and wait about 15 minutes. Then rinse.
6 Epoxy resin
Epoxy resin is a toxic substance, so it is recommended to work with it with goggles, a respirator and gloves. However, it can still get on the skin.
If there is no special solvent on hand, take an ice cube. Attach it to the cured resin. After the cooled substance can be easily scraped off the skin.
7 Zelenka and iodine
It is quite easy to get dirty with brilliant green or iodine: it is enough to inaccurately open a jar of the substance. You can get rid of the resulting stains with alcohol or any strong alcohol that is at home. Take a cotton pad, soak it in liquid and rub it. Softer solvents than alcohol are hydrogen peroxide or chlorhexidine. They can also try to lighten the spots.
eight Super glue
Everyone has used one-second glue in their lives, most often this is stored at home in reserve. It is very liquid, so it is very easy to get your hands dirty in it, and then it is quite difficult to wipe it off. You can wait until the glue is completely dry and starts to peel off. This can be mechanically cleaned from the hands. However, you will most likely end up with irritated skin as a result.
If you have a special solvent on hand, it will easily remove the composition. The store sells Antikley, which you can also keep at home just in case.
Acetone nail polish remover will also help remove the adhesive. It is necessary to wet a cotton pad with it and rub it. Another option is to apply a greasy hand cream to the traces of glue. It will dissolve the composition, so it will then easily move away from the skin.
