Try some antibacterial gel, that will get some of it off.

I take a very cap fulls of bleach and add to water. I soak my hands for a few secs and rub together. It all comes off.

The Lysol wipes they use for bathrooms works really well for not only hands but other surfaces as well. And Windex works really good too!

At Michaels, and probably other craft stores, they sell a product called "The Masters Soap." It's designed for painting but it works for gel colors as well. Just wash your hands with this an it works great. I also notice shampoo (but not the kind that saves hair color) works well for me.

I always wear gloves when dying fondant so I usually don't have this problem.

One of my students mentioned using baking soda - haven't tried it though.

I coat my hands in crisco, which keeps the coloring from sticking. But every now and then...

Last time I had to clean dye off my hand was when my pink color leaked and got all over a section in my tool box. My hand was covered in pink from trying to clean it all up.

I had to wash dishes not long after ward and by the time I was done the color was gong.
