While painting, if you have stained your hands with oil paint, it is not easily washable with water and soap. Instead apply a little baby oil and wash, there will be no sign of paint and your hands will be smooth without any roughness of the paint.

We had paint all over our hands! We had no baby oil, so we used Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The paint is gone and our hands received a great treatment!
Thanks for the idea.

I got on the computer with sticky hands and sticky fingers trying to find out what will take this kitchen cabinet stain off of my hands. Baby oil worked like a charm!! Thank you!

I used canola oil and that worked. In addition, I had this oil soap called Murphy Oil which also worked.

Decided to paint my lounge room walls with an oil based paint and it flicked all over my hands, arms and face from the roller.
I tried soap and water - no. Orange oil - no. Mayonnaise - no. And was concerned about turps on my skin.
Read here about oil .. tried it .. and IT WORKED !!
Used it while standing in the bath/shower and then rinsed off with warm water and soap.

Thank you. Thank you. Got varnish all over my hands and they were so sticky. Went onto the net looking at how to get it off as five goes with soap and water had failed! Used Pure VEGETABLE OIL and it worked. Just washed it off with soap and water. My hands are so soft now too!

Use scrubby bubbles if oil doesn't work!
