It seems like every time I do a spray painting project, even if it’s something quick, I get a little bit on my fingers. Or a lot on my fingers.
So annoying, right??
And it doesn’t just rinse off in a jiffy like regular paint either, does it? Noooooo. It just can’t be that easy!
Yes it can!
I used to scrub and scrub and scrub or just wait a few days for the paint to wear off when I ended up with hands (Or legs if it was shorts season and I was really getting into it!) that looked like this picture below.
So there are two things that you can do to solve this quickly!
1) Nail polish remover! It works! I have to admit that I’m not really too excited about putting nail polish remover all over my skin, but for the odd drip or drop it really is the fastest way to get that paint off!
2) If you have a little bit more spray paint mess to deal with, the second best method to get rid of it is non-stick cooking spray! Just spray it on, rub it in, and then wash it away with soap and water. It really melts the paint right off!
So there you have it! Even if you have really rough-looking DIYer hands like I do, at least they can be clean! 🙂
The next time you get spray paint on your hands, I hope this makes your world just a little bit less frustrating!
