My youngest daughter and I decided to play with fondant last night.

Lesson learned, always where plastic gloves when coloring the fondant. LOL

So this morning our hands are still very pink, what can we do?

I'm not sure what you can do now, but if you grease your hands with shortening (Crisco) before coloring, it washes off pretty easily.

Just a quick spray on your hands of Clorox Clean-Up. It works like a champ then just rinse and all the color magically disappears.

What usually works for me is if i wash my hands with dish washing liquid as soon as i can, normal soap just doesnt seem to do it! Also any remaining colour usually disappears once i wash my hair too, icon_wink.gif

Windex. I have white formica counters at home. Windex evaporates the color from them, instantly. I spritz a little in my hands and it does the same for them.

Wash your hands with a toothpaste that has whitener in it. I know, sounds weird but it works like a charm! icon_biggrin.gif

The clorox works well for me as well. I've also heard that if you use those mr clean magic erasers on your hands, that they work pretty well. I've never tried that though, but I trust the source that told me icon_smile.gif

What brand did you use? When I used Wilton I had all kinds of problems getting the coloring off my hands! Now when I get Americolor on my hands all I have to do is run my them under some water, before I even add soap, and it starts to come off.

Lemon juice from a lemon not the artificial lemon juice and a nail brush. My daughter spilled gold airbrush color on her arm and the lemon juice worked great. I don't like using chemicals on her skin because it is very sensitive.
