How do you remove nicotine stains from fingers? - 29-09-07, 08:33 AM

Hi all

A lovely client of mine smokes roll ups and hates the stains on her fingers, does anyone know a tip how to remove the stains? ( other than giving up smoking|!!)

I am a smoker(yes disgusting I know),but I actually find good old lemon juice works a treat and keep the hands moisturised.

A mix of salt and lemon juice rubbed into the fingers will remove the stains

I don't know whether I should tell you my tip!
It might upset a few people.

I'll wait for someone to give me permission to put you off a staple food for the rest of your life before I reveal my tip/experience.

Well, before I became an holistic therapist, I originally trained as a chef and also a baker.

When I was doing my work experience in a bakery, I was told that making bread, as in shaping the bread once its been mixed by a machine (as NO bakery makes it from scratch), removed nicotine stains.

After a shift smokers fingers would be as clean as non-smokers!!!!

So, has that put you off bread? think about all the bakers in your local bakery, think about picking up your fresh bread in the supermarket, how many of the workers smoke? Have they been handling the bread dough?

I have NEVER smoked, and it repulses me. And I must admit, if I drive past a restaurant or pub and I see the kitchen staff outside puffing away, I rarely give them my custom.

So, if you're customers want to get rid, tell them to make up a batch of bread. The packet stuff is fine, as long as they are kneading it and shaping it.

I don't do offsite smilies etc but I'm very tempted tonight
I'm getting a feeling like vomiting tbh and I don't think I can eat bread ever again.
Such a shame becuase I like toast occasionally!!

A good ole pumice sponge you can buy for under 2 bucks will do wonderfully! I wet the pumice sponge and rub some soap on it and then work it over any stain you need getting rid of, good for feet too!
