Face Paint Removal

Face Paint should be removed with mild soap (the same as you would use on the child's body), warm water and a flannel.  Baby wipes are NOT recommended to remove face paint as they can stain the colour onto the skin.  Clothing with face paint on should be soaked in cold water before being washed.  Glitter Tattoos can be removed using a little oil (baby oil or olive oil) and a flannel).
