    I have steak once a week. Since it's inflammatory, I mix turmeric, an anti-inflammatory, in water to sort of offset the problem. But this week I splashed myself, getting it on my nose! I can't get it off! icon_eek.gif

    I've totally gotten it all over my hands before, so I know it goes away with time, and it's a really tiny spot so it's hardly noticeable, but still. My cleanser doesn't seem to do anything.

    Just thought I'd share since I'm in the middle of another all-nighter. icon_biggrin.gif

    I sometimes get fresh turmeric root and grate it with a Microplane grater. Fresh turmeric is a bit resinous, and dishwashing liquid does nothing to clean off the grater. But, a few spritzes of Clorox® Clean-Up® and it comes clean.

    I agree with Satyr, I own a tv but do not subscribe to any service. There are way too many good books (and bad) out there to read to be wasting my time on pointless "reality" tv.

    I don't recommend cloroxing your nose either... though I have no suggestion as to removing the offending spot.

    Just ask Michael Jackson...chloroxing does nasty things to your nose!

    I go to great lengths to warn students about histological stains, and even buy gloves for the class. (What takes it off? Time. And shedding your skin.) Still, I end up with hysterical sorority girls with purple spots babbling about needing them off before "a function" in three hours.

    When I was a freshman, the old profs still had us washing our hands in acetone, but now they practically put on moons suits to even pour the stuff. ( Um... everybody grows scales on their hands after puberty, right? )
