Using a primer such as Kilz will help protect your wood or surface from getting stained or having mold when you paint. Primers can come in both oil-based and water-based materials.
One important thing to remember when possible is that any leftover primer, no matter which type it might be, must be taken care of appropriately.
If the primer does happen to get onto your skin, it should be properly cleaned off just in case it can lead to different types of irritations and allergic reactions.
Using a primer is a great way to make sure your next coat of paint will last for many years without any issues since its surface will be spot-free and well protected.
How to get kilz off skin
Use your favorite solvent to clean the Kilz once it has dried. Wipe the solvent over the area until the paint comes off.
Wash the area thoroughly with soap and water after the paint is removed. If they are not rinsed properly, Kilz and mineral spirits can irritate your skin over time.
Using soap and water
If you have Kilz and the color has not dried down (or it is water-based, to begin with!), you can take it off at any time using soap and water.
Water-based paints are meant to be removed in this manner because being that they are water-based, soap breaks down the chemical makeup of a painted surface.
If you have used oil paint but don’t want to utilize soap and water as your removal method then rubbing alcohol is another viable choice.
It breaks down parts of the paint’s composition and gets it off slick surfaces hands more easily. If a spot of Kilz remains on the skin after washing up.
Adding Mineral Spirits
Apply mineral spirits directly to the Kilz once it has dried. Apply until the paint has been removed. Wash with soap and water. When your fingertips become irritated by this water-sensitive product, you should rinse them.
Scrub with baking soda
One of the best ways to remove hand paint from your skin is by using a mixture of baking soda and vegetable oil.
Apply the mixture evenly over any area where the hand paint residue is still visible and allow it time to soak in.
Finally, wash off with warm water and a combination cleaner /soap. Remember, you are using natural products, so do not use harsh materials like stripping agents or solvents.
Apply Baby oil
Whenever you struggle with stains on your hands after painting, when soap and water didn’t seem to work, it’s time to use baby oil.
Once you’ve painted the area you’d like to massage, spray a little baby oil on it and massage it vigorously for about 30 seconds to a minute. If you managed to stain your skin in the first place, this should help rid it of any leftover paint.
Scrubbing with salt
A good thing about salt is that it can be dissolved in other substances like oils, which means that when you mix the two together, it creates a salted oil.
Massage this mixture into your skin to remove any type of paint or makeup you wish to get rid of.
But make sure you keep the solution on your face for at least a full minute before washing it off with soap and water because the longer your leave it on the better chance you’ll have of scrubbing all that unwanted paint out.
