Rub your hands together well to get as much off as possible and then simply wash with mild soap and water. Be sure to use lotion afterwards because concrete powder/mix is very drying to the skin.

I heard you can use vinegar?

Vinegar. It is an acid and will do the trick.

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)
