Take your hair spray and spray it on your hand that is in the places where your hands were stained. Now the point here is that this is not a sure shot approach. There are some people who say that only the hair spray will do the trick. However, you need to clean and scrub, as well.

STEP 3: Soap

If this does not work, you can try using some lava soap when you scrub your hands.

STEP 4: Scrub with a Brush

When you are scrubbing, it would also be a good idea to scrub with a brush.

STEP 5: The Bleach Approach

Now, this is not advisable as bleach might just burn your hand. However, if nothing works for you, you could apply bleach to your hands. But, bear in mind that bleach is caustic and will definitely burn you.
