Goop - is that like swarfega?

Just looked up swarfega....yup, looks the same.

I think Isa may be correct. If my tried and true fix doesn't work, then sorry Twinkle, I'm only a man .......follow the sage advise of me missus.

BTW, are we going to post a picture of this "bluing accident"?

Quoting ClaraLiz

swarfega is the most lovely word.

It is a nice word - better than GOOP!

In all the years I have known Beerman - he's never dyed his hands. Bloodied them a bit, but never dyed. (He can get out a blood stain very nicely!) ;)

The only remedy I found was the same as mine - household bleach. And, I have had hands of many different colors. I'm also good at painting my hands (and clothes) better than the walls, floors, or any other object. I have the wardrobe to prove it.

Twinkle - can l suggest clarifying lotion by Clinque - when l have stains with false tan it takes it off!! You may have some in your bathroom!

I'd only recommend steering clear of Smurf Village; no telling what those smurfs would think you've been up to. Okay, I've gone and done it, I've crossed the line
