Get food colouring out of your skin or your kids’ skin easily with this simple hack.
It was the day after my daughter’s second birthday and it genuinely looked like penguin paraphernalia had been thrown up all over our home.
My aunt had just arrived in town that day and was en route to visit us. As I picked up remnants of the party with my hands and feet, it got so quiet.
“The kids are playing so nicely,” I thought. “This couldn’t be more perfect.”
Then, the silence became almost deafening. “Do I capitalize on the peacefulness and solider on? Or do I dare find out what they are up to?” My daughter chose to answer this question for me when she presented herself looking like a melting smurf. FOOD COLOURING. They had gotten into my food colouring. My son was considerate enough to choose yellow as his war paint, but my daughter, well my daughter looked like the photo above AFTER I tried bathing her. I took to Facebook and
cried to begged asked my friends for any help they may have to get food colouring out of skin.

The shaving cream is also great for cleaning up skin and hard surfaces after using any water-based paint, like finger or poster paints.
That’s really good to know! Thanks.
