  1. Take basin and pour in it hot water. Water temperature has to be so high as far as you can suffer. Add to water liquid soap and baking soda (1-2 tablespoons on liter). Liquid soap can be replaced with shampoo, shower gel or liquid for washing of ware.
  2. Ship hands in water for 10-15 minutes. Then take pumice and under water try to scrub away glue from skin. If there is no pumice, take emery paper, as a last resort, file. Also as abrasive it is possible to use any srub: for body, hands, legs, but it is less effective.
  3. Wipe hands and apply on them fat cream. In 5-7 minutes scrape off residues of glue from skin nails.
  4. It is possible not to rub hands pumice, and to cut off glue edge or cuticle scissors. For this purpose steam out skin in soap and soda bath or take hands over steam. Then accurately cut off adhesive layer together with upper layer of epidermis. This way is suitable for sites of pollution, small on the area. Be careful, you can be cut.
  5. Smear hands with any oil: sunflower, olive, creamy, etc. Wait 15-20 minutes, and then wash up hands soap with use of brush.
  6. Buy solution of dimeksid in drugstore, it is on sale without recipe. Moisten with it cotton wool and wipe glue from skin. You carry out the procedure in well aired room since dimeksid has peculiar unpleasant smell. Then carefully wash hands with soap.
  7. Get in hardware stores means for removal of glue, for example AntiKlya from Henkel. Apply means on the glue which has stiffened on hands for 1-2 minutes. Then erase residues of glue rag and wash up with soap.
  8. If you do not want to suffer with baths, pumice and other procedures, then wash hands with soap just more often and smear them with cream. Soap and cream will soften outer layer of glue, and the fat and sweat produced by skin – the layer adjacent to epidermis. As a result glue will independently depart small pieces during couple of days.
