Clean paint off your hands with ease

You don't have to use turpentine to get paint off yourself, try olive oil, it softens the paint and makes it easy to remove, and it moistures your skin at the same time.

If the paint is fresh on your hands rub butter or margarine into the paint marks and it brings them off. Don't ask me why though.

I just tried this tip, and it worked like a charm. I had heavy, oil-based polyurethane floor paint on my hands. It came right off with olive oil, followed by soap-and-water rinse. Thanks!

I just poly'd some doors and I got it all over my hands. It took it right off.

Thanks for the tip.

I had jet black oil paint all over my hands, and the olive oil took it off in a snap - so weird, but so great! Thanks!

Sat. night at 9PM: do I really want to go buy turpentine, because I can't get the poly off arms, hand? No - 1 tablespoon of olive oil cleaned it perfectly. This person is a genius!
