Other Tips and Tricks for Removing Dirt from Your Skin
Of course, the way described above isn’t the only way for you to get the stains from your skin. Here are some quick and easy tips for removing dirt stains from your skin, no matter what the cause.
- Invest in a nail file. Not only will your hands get beaten up by playing in the dirt, your nails won’t fare too well either. So get a nail file or buffer that can help you to get the dirt out from in and around your nails.
- Make a paste of oatmeal and milk, and rub it all over your hands. Rinse it, and your hands will be both clean and smooth.
- If you are working with colored dirt (red shale and some clays), then you may notice some red staining on your hands. Grab a raw potato, cut it in half, and rub the exposed potato over the affected area; this tip works for dyes as well.
- If you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time, bring a baggie full of baby powder with you to freshen up. Pop your hands in, take them out, and rub them together to get rid of the dirt quickly.
