How to Get Easter Egg Dye off Your Hands

Easter Eggs
(Image is in the Public Domain)

Why are there so many top ranked answers for how to get the dye out of your or your kids' hands that just don't help? Dishsoap? Baking soda or toothpaste plus lots of scrubbing? Feh. Well, consider that baking soda does provide great cleaning power and abasion, but vinegar is what they use to disolve the dye packs in the first place. I figured, why not use both?

I put a small pile of baking soda into my daughter's hand then sprayed some vinegar on it (I had some in a spray bottle, but you can just pour it). It started bubbling as they do when combined and I helped her rub it semi-vigerously over her hand for a few seconds. A good rinse and pop; there you go!

Left hand clean, right hand still green.

    I wish I knew how to post pics … our hands were as dyed as dyed could be … dark and all over and 15 mins in the tub all go e

It must depend on the dye. I also had no results.

Worked perfectly- thanks for the help!!

Soap and water worked awesome … soaked in the tub with bubbles for 15 mins worked liked a charm and he got to play with his wrestlers… no scrubbing or vinager

The baking soda, white vinegar & Clorox Clean-up together worked.
Soak fingers in this solution, then scrub vigorously.
Then after that, rinse clean. Wa La , no more egg dye.
