When painting one of my favorite go to is spray paint (unless I am painting furniture then my prefered paint of choice is Benjamin Moore Latex brush on).

When using spray paint no matter how careful I am I usually end up with spray paint on my hands. I was using paint thinner or mineral spirits "in other words very harsh chemicals"  to get this off my skin. This became an everyday routine for me which quickly became a health concern. I took to the internet to find a safer efficient way to clean up my oversprayed hands. I want to share a recipe that I have been using for over a year now & it has not let me down.

I found a small half pint mason jar I had to store my hand cleaner in.

Mix

½ cup of Coconut Oil

½ cup of baking soda

This worked beautifully and the best part it left my hands silky smooth afterwards.

Because of the coconut oil it will leave your skin feeling a little greasy. Just put a dollop of Dawn dishwashing liquid to wash your hands with after thoroughly cleaning with the coconut oil/baking soda mixture and it will remove any oily feeling from your skin.

Note: If you have spray paint around your fingernails you may need to use a toothbrush or dish scrubby to loosen it from around your nails.
