    Alcohol will remove it.

    Oh rainbow I tried that, and the nail polish remover too. They didn't do any better tha plain old soap. I scrubbed as best as I could with a washcloth and wore a lot of makeup.

    Washing dishes helped get it off my hands.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I made it through the day without any funny looks - other than the ones I usually get, that is!

    How about goo-gone. It is a citrus product that removes paint and such from the skin. It is pleasant smelling too, Jean

    I too have suffered the Blu Kote curse. Looked like I had just voted in Iraq's 1st election, and several times at that. I tried soap and water, alcohol, you name it, but nothing worked. What finally removed it was taking a shower and washing my hair. I guess hair acts as a mild abrasive. That or Curls Rock shampoo is not telling the truth about their ingredients.

    I just found this thread. When I got BluKote on my wife's bathroom sink I thought I was dead where I stood. In my panic I grabbed the nearest thing to me which was my kids Aim (original flavor) toothpaste and it took it right off. I used it on my fingers and it took it off of them also with some mild scrubbing.

    Check with equibling! She had the same thing happen. She posted pics too, although I am sorry I can't find that thread . . . she was such a good sport to post pics of her "little accident," LOL!

    I did that the other day to my hands. I was cleaning the kitchen afterwards and something took it right off, it was either:

    Baking soda with water to make a paste
    White vinegar
    Pledge Multi Surface cleaner

    Sorry I can't be more specific lol I'm not trying it again. But perhaps give the first two a try, they won't hurt.

    I used Goop or some other product for car mechanics. It was whatever brand my Dad had in the shop at the time.

    I was trying to find some blu-kote at the farm store the other day. After reading all this I'm not sure I want to buy some now.[​IMG]
    I just wanted to have it on hand if ever needed. Can someone please tell me does it come in a salve or spray or what? I found some called wound kote (sray) for horses but it did not mention chickens. It did say not to use on cats. Is it the same?
