We Recommend Bringing Something To Protect Your Car For The Ride Home.  A Towel Or Garbage Bag To Sit On Will Help Protect Your Car From Getting As Colorful As You!

The Sooner You Clean Up, The Easier The Color Comes Off.  Dust Off As Much Of The Powder As Possible Before Getting Into The Shower.  You Can Try Adding Baking Soda To Your Body Wash For Those Areas Where The Color Is A Little Tough To Clean.
