  1. Wash your hands

    Go to a utility sink or a sink that does not stain, such as a stainless-steel sink. Scrub your hands together vigorously, focusing on the areas that are stained with dye. Rinse them with warm water, and repeat the process until the dye stops fading.

  2. Exfoliate your hands

    Wet your hands with warm water. Hold a pumice stone in your dominant hand, and scrub at the dye spots on your opposite hand. Move the stone back and forth gently using long strokes. Continually rinse your hands to remove the exfoliated skin. For more exfoliating power, soak your hands in hot water for five minutes, and do a second scrub using the pumice stone. Repeat on your opposite hand.

  3. Soak your hands in a bleach solution

    Fill a bowl or a bucket with a gallon of water. Pour in 1/2 teaspoon of household bleach and stir to create a solution. Place your hands in the solution, and rub on the remaining dye stains with your fingers. Wash your hands with soap and water.
