The other day I was using spray paint on a project and Vanessa wanted to help. I thought this was a bad idea but her persistence wore me down. So I made her a deal and said that she could help but that we'd have to hold the can together. It actually worked out well. Until I noticed that somehow she got a smudge of paint on her cheek. I panicked because soap and water weren’t working to remove it. Not knowing what else to do and not wanting to call and ask my Mom or Adam (I could just hear them giving me shit about letting a small child use spray-paint) - I grabbed my go-to cleaner, Soft Scrub. I am pretty certain that you are not supposed to use that on skin but the littlest bit worked like a charm. And come on -- I am not a total nut....I used soap and water again after to clean the chemicals off her cheek. However, if she can never get tan in that area again, I might have to fess up and blame it on the bleach.
