    It isn't particularly good for your skin but try Handy Andy floor cleaner. I used to use it to get hair dye off my hands. I fill a washing up glove with it, put my hand in the glove 30 seconds then wash off with water. Worked like a dream.

    Thanks all. I have scrubbed and scrubbed with 3 types of soap lol! It has faded heaps so hoping it'll be gone after a few more hand washes tomorrow.

    I wouldn't be using any strong chemicals, just let it fade with normal hand washing.

    However just wanted to say I feel your pain, the amount of paint stains we have on kids clothes from "washable" paints is ridiculous!

    Yeah I think that'll be my plan. It was only the blue that stained her skin and for some reason it came off her legs easily but won't budge off her hands!
