Home Hint #11: Remove Wood Stain Splatter Naturally

I recently completed a small wood staining project for my home. If you are a home owner, chances are you have dabbled in staining things here and there. If you are like me, you make bigger messes than you anticipate when you set out on a project. I wear protective gloves to protect my hands, but this time Id splattered stain on my arms and legs.

I made as much a mess of my skin as I made of the brush and tin - own image

I typically dont like to use white spirits, mineral spirits, or turpentine directly on my skin to remove wood stain, so I found a great alternative. I use essential oils often, and knowing about lemon essential oil and all its versatile uses, I thought Id give it a try to remove the wood stain from my skin. It worked just as quick and easy as mineral spirits do. Bonus: it is all natural and non-toxic!

To use, just place 1-2 drops of lemon essential oil on the area of skin stained and wipe the stains away with a clean cloth. Voila - stain gone.

Thanks for sharing this useful tip. I will try lemon essential oil next time I get wood stain or similar on my skin. Like you, I try to protect my skin (and the area around where I am doing a project) but still often end up with a bit of a mess. I don't like using turps etc on my skin either so am pleased to hear of a natural alternative.
Hi Marie,
I am happy to hear this may prove useful to you! Thank you for reading! :)
