Removing Spray Adhesive From Hands

I have been using spray adhesive for some different crafts lately. I have noticed once it gets on your hands, it is stuck quite well. You can't use rubber gloves, because all you'd do is stick to your project.


Last week, I had been working on a project using spray adhesive. When I went to scrub my hands I couldn't get it off. I used Dawn dish detergent and a scrubby pad, but I still had quite a bit of residue. I found a bottle of lotion and liberally added it to my hands and rubbed it in for about a minute. I washed and rinsed my hands and the residue was gone. Finding this little remedy after battling to get it off made my project much more enjoyable.

Use a manageable amount of petroleum jelly to massage into your hands before using then wipe off the excess. Makes glue and paint on your hands much easier to clean off.

A true pro-tip! I had loads of adhesive on my wrist and wondered if my little Tisserand Sweet Dreams roller would work and it did!

OMG, thank you so much. I am helping my daughter with another school project and the spray adhesive wouldn't come off no matter how painfully raw I scrubbed my hands. No word of a lie, I used baking soda, SOS pads, Dawn, Makeup Remover. You name it nothing worked and my hands hated me. LOL I just came on to see what will work and saw your post. I am definitely going to try this! :)
