    How do you remove this from skin? I finally got around to spraying it on my rooster who is trying to grow back his tail feathers. Now three fingers are covered, and I have places to go....

    This has been posted before. I do not think you can remove it. It should wear off in a few days.

    Imp- Last week I got "Great Stuff" foam on my hands. Had to spend the week looking like I had a skin disease. It's still on the nails.

    A little bleach and water mixture will take it off of anything

    I've gotten it on me. Just scrub with soap and water and it will come off........ most of it. It will fade away by the next day. Even my chicken can get it off her shoulders within a couple of days. Go figure that one out.

    I have used Blu-Kote many times and no matter how hard you try not to get it on your hands it always winds up on them (somehow even through rubber gloves!!) Anyway, pretty much have to wait for it to wear off. [​IMG]

    I had all but given up trying to get it off my hands until later that day when I was cleaning my bathroon I noticed the Kaboom bathroom cleaner I was using was actually taking the blu-kote off my hands...since then that is what I have used whenever I get it on myself.
