Help please...its all over me. I had a bath and scratched and scrubbed but hardly anything came off.

This isn't a good look for me :P

Thanks, I tried googling it but all I got were links for lip gloss and painting tips :mad:

I was painting. Gloss paint I mean

its on my elbows and stuff...cos I put my arms in it. And I was wiping the dust off the brush onto my pants...cos I didnt want to brush dust into the skirting boards.

I have to meet someone soon too...I usually use sugar and washing up liquid, it gets oil off but it wont get gloss off!!!

Turpentine?

(A clear, colourless liquid organic solvent, distilled from petroleum mainly used as thinner for paints. It is also useful for cleaning paint brushes and removing grease, tar adhesives and black shoe marks) So one would assume from skin too. Dunno if it's an irritant though, shouldn't be....

lol, only if you're planning to water the turpentine down first. I'd guess that stuff burns...

I've used it before actually but dont think we have any here...I was wondering if there was any household thing I could use.


I'll just try the sugar and washing up liquid again. And scratch off a few layers of skin XD

Hmm, it's an organic solvent... You should be OK as long as you don't drink it, I'd have thought... Ah:
Skin contact with turpentine can cause irritation and redness, and longer term exposure can cause may cause eczema and dermatitis. Turpentine can be absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream.
Yeah, don't Though above that it did say 'prolonged' contact...

White spirit, for sure. I got covered in white gloss paint once - use cotton balls and white spirit, and it'll take the paint off, easily. :-)

Ahh, it'll come off! I painted my uni room the other week and got paint everywhere, including myself, and it was turquiose blue! Just keep washing it, and once its dried, it'll flake off after a while

I wouldn't put any paint removing stuff on it, and its highly toxic and can do some serious damage, I would try nail varnish remover though

White spirit
Either white spirit or methalated spirit (the purple one) will take it off. Just rinse it off well afterwards.
