The Rust-Oleum company makes many kinds of oil-based and water-based paint, from interior and exterior house paint to marine paint. Remove this paint from skin as you would other types of paint. When the paint is still wet, especially if it is water water-based latex pain, wash with regular soap and water. If you didn't notice the paint soon enough and it has dried, it's not as easy to remove, but it is possible. You don't have to just let the paint wear off.
Things You'll Need
- Pumice soap
- Vegetable, olive or mineral oil
Wash the paint-stained area of skin under warm, running water. If the paint is still wet, much may come off with water alone. If you have several areas of paint, or the paint covers a large area, do this in the shower.
Rub pumice soap, in bar or liquid form, over the skin. The mild abrasive action of the pumice will gently scrub off the paint.
Use vegetable, olive or mineral oil, especially if paint is oil-based, to remove remaining traces of paint. This may also help soothe any skin irritation from the paint. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel.
Tips & Warnings
- Pumice soap is sold as bars or as liquids, in pump dispensers. You can buy these in many stores. If you have trouble finding the soap, try auto parts stores, as mechanics use the soap to remove grease from their hands. Some brands contain moisturizers.
- Fingernail polish (acetone) and paint thinners also remove paint--these are very flammable, however, and not intended for use on skin.
- If the paint is on your face, be careful when using pumice soap, especially around your eyes. Consider trying the oil first.
