How to remove spray adhesive from skin (hands)

How to remove spray adhesive from skin - - what every crafter should know!

One of the hazards of crafting is the possibility of getting glued to something. Today while doing a really cute project, I ended up with very strong spray adhesive on my hands. First I tried using an alcohol wipe on them, that didn’t do a thing. Next I attempted to use just plain old soap and water (hey I had to try it, even though I was pretty sure it wasn’t going to help). Starting to get worried at this point (no one wants their hands stuck to stuff forever) I tried pouring on rubbing alcohol, that didn’t do a thing. I texted hubby at work, who was probably laughing at me on the other end, who suggested just waiting until it dried and then try peeling it off. Who has that kind of time with children running around?!?!?!?!?!

Finally what worked…. Baby Oil! Pour it on, really rub it in and then wash hands with soap and water. It worked great!!!

    THANK YOU!! This is ME today, and with the same spray glue you used!! Its the ONLY spray glue, Ive found that completely STICKS!!.. Sticks SO GOOD, its a hassle getting off ones hands!! I didnt have any baby oil, but I used Lubriderm, and it worked very well, also! Probably any type of oil would do the trick! Thanks so much for the tip, as my hands were a real mess!! You were a lifesaver for me today :) Sandi
