How to Get Oil-Based Paint off Skin. If you’re using oil-based paint and you end
up with more on your hands than on the object you’re painting, try these methods to remove
it. You will need Household oils Soap and water
Mentholated topical ointment Mayonnaise Turpentine Commercial paint remover Gritty industrial
soap and moisturizer. Step 1. Find oil products around the house, such as
baby oil, vegetable oil, or olive oil, and massage it into the paint. Then wash your hands with regular soap and
water. It may take several applications to completely
remove the paint. Step 2. Try applying other common household items. Mentholated topical ointment and mayonnaise
are both oil-based compounds known to break down and dissolve oil-based paint. Step 3. Rub turpentine into the paint to dissolve
it if paint still exists. Make sure you thoroughly wash the affected
area with soap and water immediately after getting rid of the paint. Too much skin exposure to turpentine may cause
the skin to become overly sensitive. Step 4. Use a commercially produced oil-based paint
remover if any paint remains. Many products that remove oil-based paint
from skin are available at hardware, home improvement, and beauty supply stores. Step 5. Use a gritty industrial soap. There are many commercially produced gritty
soaps available to clean oily, greasy substances from skin. Step 6. Thoroughly wash and moisturize the affected
area after you remove the paint. Many cleaning methods are potentially damaging
to the skin — especially sensitive areas — but complete removal of product residue
may prevent irritation. Follow cleaning with moisturizing lotion to
keep your skin soft and supple. Did you know Turpentine is a distillation
of resin that comes from pine trees.
