Having Fun Painting Easter Eggs? Need Help To Remove Dye Stains?

Looking forward to painting some Easter eggs with your kids or friends during the Easter break? Easter egg dye can be rather painful if they stained your hands or your clothes. Here is the guide to remove these stains. The golden rule is to remove the stains as soon as you can. 

Firstly, here is a quick tip on preserving Easter eggs. Applying UV spray paint after each layer of dye helps to extend the lifespan of the dye on Easter eggs.

How to clean dye stains on your hands?

You can prevent stains by wearing rubber gloves. If you do get stains on your fingers, you should soak your hands in warm water as soon as possible. Then apply either a little scoop of baking soda and white vinegar or your toothpaste in your palm and gently rub against your hands. Don’t worry if the stains didn’t come off at once. They will, eventually.

On your clothes?

OK, this is the tough one. Please do not try to be fancy while painting your eggs. Expensive or dry-clean-only clothes do not get along very well with this messy activity. “Have your apron on all the time” might be the best suggestion of all. However, stain removers can somehow help you out. Apply a reasonable amount of stain remover on the damped spot and really work the remover into the fabric with your fingers. This process might take up to 15 minutes.

Hope you can keep yourself clean after a fun Easter-egg-dyeing session.
