Rustoleum paint comes in two forms either oil-based or water-based. It can be produced to suit usage in interior and exterior parts of the house as well as for marine uses. When applying it, there are chances of the paint finding its way to your skin either on the hands, legs or any other part that might remain uncovered. Removing it is one stressing experience although the process of getting rid of rustoleum paint from your skin is not different from other types of paint. However, it will largely depend on the type of paint you are using before coming up with the right way to remove the unwanted paint stains on your skin. Whenever you realize such stains on your skin the first thing should be taking quick steps to have it off especially when it’s still wet but if that is impossible then follow these simple instructions and you will find it easy removing rustoleum paint from your skin even when dry.
First, clean the paint stain under clean warm water that is running if it is as a result of water-based paint. You will be able to remove much of the paint when it is still wet but the case is different when dry. The amount of water to use will largely depend on the area of your skin covered by the paint. You can then use either bar or liquid soap and rub it over the stain continuously and repeatedly. The abrasive action of the soap after getting in contact with the stain will help remove some amounts of the paint if not all of it. On the other hand, it is advisable to use olive, mineral or vegetable oil if the stain is of an oil-based paint. These oils will thoroughly remove all the traces of rustoleum paint that are visible on your skin and can also be used for water based paints to remove any stains that would have been left. In addition to that, they can prevent your skin from any irritation that might be caused by the paint thus are the best to be used. Once the stain is completely off, dry your skin using a soft towel.
By adhering to these instructions, it is easy to get rid of the rustoleum paint stain from your skin but there are few things you need to bear in mind when preparing to remove a stain. The type of soap you use is very vital to consider and the best one should be pumice soap whether in liquid or bar form. Some of them contain moisturizers which are the best therefore have that in mind when buying as not any other soap you find in the market will give you positive results. Some paint thinners and fingernail polish are good for removing paint from your skin but since they are flammable they are not good to be used on your skin. It is even more important to consider what you use to remove the paint especially when it’s on the face because some agents may be harmful to your eyes once they come into contact.
