    There's a product, I want to say Carrotene (but that's not it) or something similar sounding, that one applies to one's hands before working with aniline dyes to prevent discoloring of one's hands.

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I haven't heard of this term since 1982 and wonder if it's still used (or ever was; it's possible I could have dreamed it. "I reject your reality and substitute my own.":grin:)

    I've heard of Painter's Liquid Glove, which is a brand name I think. I always put on a liberal coating of Burt's Bee's Hand Balm before painting or working on my car, it makes the paint or oil come off much more easily.
    I can't say I've ever hear of anything specifically for Analine dyes though.

    I use these amazing things called rubber gloves. They are made from rubber and they fit on you hand like a glove. There's this great little hardware store near me called Home Depot that sells them.

    Sorry Derek ;)

    Google brought this up as a possibility

    YardGlove Barrier Lotion

    It claims to prevent staining and chemical penetration. Though nothing specific about dyes.
