How do I get food coloring off skin?

I use the Wilton gel food coloring, and my 17 month old got a hold of a cookie I just iced with blue icing. Her hands are now stained blue. She is smurfette. Any ideas on how to get rid of it faster than just letting it fade?

  • You might try alcohol - the type you drink or rubbing alcohol. Don't use too much.

  • Try rubbing alcohol. I really don't know anything else other than letting it fade on it's own. It should be gone in a few days.
