Household hint: Easy paint removal - Cooking oil, baby oil, shaving cream or shampoo will soften and remove paint from your hands and face more pleasantly then turpentine or mineral spirits. If you forget to wear a cap while painting the ceiling, baby oil is a very good choice for removing the paint that dripped onto your hair.
