Decided to do some dip dyeing and in a moment of sheer brilliance, decided not to put on the gloves as advised.

Result - a bright blue hand. The children are wetting themselves.

How do I get it off?!? Tried toothpaste, and hasn't really worked.

U can get stuff from hairdressing shops that removes dye, it's only a few quid and works really well, don't know of any home remedies though, sorry. Good luck!

Try hairspray or nail polish remover.

Tried the nail polish remover, but didn't really work much - still most definitely blue...sigh.

Hairspray next, and then off to the hairdresser in the morning - great idea, thanks!

Wear gloves to cover them up?

Only joking - try scrubbing them with a mix of washing up liquid and sugar - the coarser the better.
