So, the last time I was dyeing leather I spilled a bit down the side of the bottle. I put the bottle away, and months later (today) pulled it out of the box I keep them in.

As it turns out, alcohol based leather dye doesn't dry.



My hands, after three applications of soap and water. I guess I'm stuck looking like Illryia.  Undecided

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

Messes that go uncleaned will ALWAYS come back to haunt you! Hopefully it will wear off soon. =)

Hey:
This happened to me the day before I was the guest of honour at my baby shower.  I couldn't go with bright red hands... nail polish remover worked for me.  If it has ethanol or acetone in it, it should work.  Might dry your skin a little...

Try spraying some WD40 on your hands.

I know this is old, but I figured I'd respond for knowledge's sake. Nair will take dye of skin crazy fast.
