Spray painting is undoubtedly the quickest way to transform pretty much anything! I was spray painting my basketball hoop pole (post?) when I realized I was getting overspray from the spray paint bottle all over my hands! It turned out great but then I was left with spray paint coated hands right before bedtime. Often times, just taking a shower doesn’t get rid of the paint so I thought I’d share with you guys how to remove spray paint from skin. Works like a charm for me every time!
How to remove spray paint from skin:
- Use a few squirts of Fractionated Coconut Oil and 2-3 drops of Lemon oil to coat the skin completely.
- Scrub your hands until the paint begins to dissolve.
- Use a sponge or an old toothbrush to scrub off any difficult to remove areas including around nails.
- Rinse with warm water.
- Wash your hands/skin with a moisturizing hand soap. Lotion or hand cream, if desired since spray paint and scrubbing has a tendency to dry out your skin.

If you don’t have these oils, you can try olive oil or vegetable oil in lieu of coconut oil and use baking soda instead of lemon oil.
