Butternut Squash residue on hands solution

In the future I will definitely be using gloves, but this was my first time and I had no idea this was going to happen. :) crazy!

Butternut Squash residue on hands solution

Use packing tape and stick it to your hands...it takes several pieces but it will almost all come off!! I got 90% or more off within about 10 mins using it...seemed to work best on towel-dried hands.

Nasty film on my hands after cutting butternut squash

Packing tape!! I had this film on my hand as well, the Elmer's glue comparison was pretty dead on. I first tried the lemon thing (after much scrubbing) and when I finally gave up, I picked up the sticker from the squash that I had irresponsibly stuck to the countertop...part of it stuck so I took the sticker and used it to pull the piece off the counter and a lightbulb turned on! Several small pieces of packing tape later and I had removed most, probably 90% of the film. It seemed to work best when my hands were still slightly damp from washing them. My hands were still dry but I just put some lotion on and I feel pretty much back to normal! I hope this helps someone, and also I feel sort of like a genius right now. :)
