Try paint thinner...local hardware store should have small bottles (0,5L) of it.

Dye the rest of you blue so people won't see the difference.

I should add...better not to smoke while cleaning...paint thinner is highly flammable. Also, check with the clerk at the store for removal ideas before purchasing the thinner...clerk may have a better idea. Just let them know what the dye was made of.

Also, we have a product here in the US called "Goop", cleans nearly anything off your hands, and is a bit easier on the skin. The store may have a version of that.

After cleaning, wash your hands several times and thoroughly, then apply your favorite hand cream.

Then, run to the airport and purchase two first-class round-trip air tickets on BA, and send them to Chicago. We'll make sure they are taken care of.....

If you're on a low budget, you could send just one economy class round-trip ticket on British Airways or Malaysian Airlines, Kuala Lumpur - London - Kuala Lumpur, and send it to KL.

Sorry Schnookems - but paint thinner won't do it - been tried - by me. Goop won't do it - been tried - by me.

I have found when I do things like that (in red or purple or green), washing them in a mix of water, household bleach and a dash of dishsoap will help, depending on the intensity of the color.

Mix 4 cups water with 2 tablespoons household bleach and a few drops of soap. Soak them in the solution for about 5 minutes or so. The color should disappear or, at least, fade enough to not be too noticible in dimly lit places.

Do not use straight bleach as it can burn your hands. Only add a few drops of dishsoap because the mix of soap and bleach can cause a bit of fume if too much is used. That is, just don't dump a bunch in the water.

I'll also check the "household remedy" pamphlet for any other advise. ;)

I've got the perfect solution that will definitely get rid of that dye:

In a bowl, mix:

2 cups of hot water
2 Tablespoons of salt
2 cups of goat urine
1 cup of toilet water

Soak hands in mixture, then coat hands in KY jelly, then wrap hands in a baby diaper, and go out in public singing your favorite nursery ryhme. I gaurantee it will work.

muhahaha

Cover your hands in foundation?

Wear gloves?

Stick to dark bars/clubs?

Whatever happens, do let us know how you solved the problem. Not that we are laughing or anything.......
