Possible soluton: Learning how to remove walnut stains from hands as well as anywhere else on the body is a simple process.
While black walnuts are fun to eat, cracking them can leave behind stains on your hands. Best of all, you don't need any expensive skin
care products to do the job.
Things You Need:
Soap and Water
Wash your hands thoroughly, using a good quality soap and warm water. This will help remove any residue that may be adding to the stain.
Once your hands are clean, it will be much easier to determine how much of a walnut stain you have to deal with.
Apply lemon juice. You can squeeze the juice of one lemon or use roughly a half-cup of commercial lemon juice. Liberally apply the juice to
the walnut stains, taking time to work the juice into the skin surface. The acid will be to lighten the skin, restoring a more natural
appearance. Depending on the severity of the walnut stain, it may take two or three applications to see a difference.
Follow up with a round of cooking oil. Olive, peanut, or vegetable will all do the job. Rub the oil into the stained skin, gently but firmly.
Not only will the oil help to leech the remaining stain out of the skin, it will also help restore a proper balance of moisture to the hands.
Wash up. After removing the walnut stains, wash your hands with soup and warm water again. This will remove any traces of the oil while still
leaving a faint scent of lemon. Dry your hands thoroughly, then get back to enjoying those walnuts that you cracked earlier.
If you have dry skin, omit the use of the lemon juice. The acid content may cause the stained area to dry out even further. Move on to
applying the cooking oil. Keep in mind that without using the lemon juice, it may take several rounds of the oil to remove walnut stains from
hands and other areas
