    While spraying the bums of my little BO's I inadvertently sprayed myself with Blue-Kote. While they look kinda cute all yellow and blue I do not! [​IMG] I have tried everything I can think of around the house to get it off. No luck! Any suggestions?

    Thanks ya'll!

    I ended up covered in BlueKote and the only thing that worked to remove it was something I found accidently while cleaning my tub after giving up on getting it off myself... I notied the KaBoom Bathroom cleaner was removing it from my stained skin.....

    The best way to get Blu-Kote off is to get some rubbing alcohol on there as soon as you can. The sooner you do the easier it will come off. If you let it dry for too long even with the alcohol it will take a while to get it all off.

    I've spent weeks being that blueish-purple color [​IMG]

    Thanks y'all! I finally used Soft Scrub and it is significantly lightened. It's a good thing. I am speaking to a group of 50 or so architects today and I hate speaking in front of groups! The last thing I needed was to feel self conscious about my blue hands! Perhaps everyone will notice how soft my hands are when I shake hands with them and not that they are blue!

    Have a great day!!!
