Help...candle dye all over my hands


 Share

Recommended Posts

Okay,feel like such an idiot. What can I do to get liquid candle dye off my hands. I was gonna put just a bit of blue dye in my wax, so didn't put on rubber gloves like I usually do, the top of the bottle was loose, now I've got blue all over my fingers, under my nails and I have scrubbed with soap,used a little bleach, afraid my skins gonna fall off from so much scrubbing....agggghhhhh :o

This whole scenario brings back bad memories from last week. Went to put in Pink liquid dye in the candle and the top was loose, when I squeezed it the top popped off that controls the drops and the hot pink dye was all over my face, arms, counters, my clothes were covered....I looked like I had just gotten hit by a car!!!

For the counter tops , I used Comet cleanser and water with a dish cloth, for the skin it was just constant liquid soap and warm water. Most of it was gone by that night when I washed my hair and my hands were all soapy once again.....

Feelin your pain.....Boy am I feeling it!!!

I even tried rubbing alcohol....but all that did was stink my hands up...didn't help a thing. Be careful with the bleach....man that stuff will dry your hands out and burn the tissue.

Hope that helps

Thanks all, all of it's gone from my fingers but under my nails some is still there. When I take my shower in a little while, it might come off when I wash my hair. I made a big mistake of using some stuff called muscle magic that my daughter uses to get grease out her hubbys clothes (he works on vehicles for a hobby) talk about rough on your hands, about 2 seconds after putting it on my hands, began to burn now hands are peeling. Geeze shoulda read all these posts before trying to get it off.:D Next time I'm putting my latex gloves on even if I'm just gonna use a toothpick in the dye. oh well live and learn. :wink2:
