How To Remove Fake Blood From Your Kid’s Skin
Halloween is over, and I know what you’re thinking: “How in the HECK do I get these fake bloodstains off of my kid?????”
Two words: Baby oil. I tested out fake blood and baby oil on my own arm so I could see the results firsthand.
First wash the stained skin with soap and water to remove any surface residue. Then douse a cotton ball with baby oil and start scrubbing. Not too hard, though—at first my arm was bright red so I thought it was still stained, but then I realized I’d been scrubbing like a mad woman. After a few minutes the redness was completely gone.
Depending on the brand of fake blood, how much was applied, and how long the stain has set, it may take a couple of tries to completely remove the red blotch. One application will at least noticeably lighten if it doesn’t remove it completely.
