Rust-Oleum is a popular brand of weather-resistant paint available in cans and spray canisters. The product warning labels caution that Rust-Oleum paints can cause skin irritation, so if you get paint on your skin, rinsing is the first order of business. Follow these tips to get the paint off your skin completely.
Things You'll Need
- Paint thinner Acetone Clean cloth or scrub brush Soapy water Bucket Skin cream or lotion
Rinse the skin area with warm, soapy water, taking care not to rub or scratch the skin excessively.
Remove persistent Rust-Oleum by pouring a small amount of paint thinner or acetone on a clean cloth and rubbing the paint-covered skin.
Rinse immediately to minimize skin irritation. Wait a few minutes, and repeat as necessary until the paint comes off.
Gently rub a quality hand lotion on the affected skin. Neosporin or a similar topical analgesic may provide some pain relief from itching and burning.
Tips & Warnings
- Wear safety goggles and work in a ventilated area when using spray paint.
- Do not breathe Rust-Oleum paint fumes or get any of the product in the eyes. Rinse immediately with cold water if paint gets in your eyes and seek medical attention. See a doctor or dermatologist if the skin becomes inflamed, extremely irritated, begins to blister or shows any signs of a worsening chemical burn.
