Removing Concrete Mix and Dust from Skin

My husband is a stone mason and gets concrete mix and dust on his skin, mainly arms and legs. How do you get that off? We have heard of using vinegar-rubbing on skin before showering. Does anyone know if it really works?

Vinegar sounds logical. Cement is mostly ground limestone. Limestone is a lot of calcium. Calcium is alkaline. The vinegar would pretty much react to limestone the way it does to baking soda, on a much smaller scale. It sounds like it would bust it up and make it easier to wash off. (06/27/2006)
