Whether you’re working on your car, painting your room or cleaning out the garden, you should be proud of your greasy hands. Dirty hands might feel like badges of honour after a hard day’s work.
However, after the hard-working, you may find a simple bar of soap and water doesn’t do the trick and remove all the stains. If you’re struggling to get ingrained dirt off your hands, we’ve got a few good tips for you on how to remove stains from your hands.
Soaking your hands can be helpful to remove stains from your hands, but remember that prolonged contact with water can dehydrate skin and cause more damage. Try these soaks:
Baking soda soak: pour baking soda or bicarbonate of soda onto your hands; rub in then soak in warm water.
Apple cider vinegar soak: add a cup of apple cider vinegar to your basin of warm water.
To remove stains from your dirty hands easily and thoroughly, you can use a scrub to gently rub your hands together for several minutes. The scrub removes dirt and dead cells on your hands to give you healthy skin.
