How do you get rid of food coloring stains on your fingers (nails especially) and the residue left by spraying pans with Pam?? Thanks!

residue from pam should wipe up with a warm soapy sponge.

as for food coloring on the hands... scrub scrub scrub. LOL i wear food grade gloves or put a little shortening on my hands before kneading fondant.

I don't use pam I use one of the water-based sprays such as bakers pride and it doesn't bake on like pam does as for color on your fingers I just do the dishes and that usually takes the color out!....hth

I always wash my hands in diluted bleach and clean the cabinets/counters with it too. It's harsh on the hands, but it cleans up the stains pretty well. Just be sure to rinse well and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

Magic eraser works wonders and you don't have to scrub hard. The colour comes off like a dream. I have used it on my countertops too when I have spilled colour and it comes right off.
