How do I remove concrete from the skin?
By LJ from Victoria
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.

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)
