    1- Rub the dried foam with a pumice stone to wear as much of the foam away as possible. Wash hands with soap and warm water.

    2- Apply lanolin or petroleum jelly generously to the affected area. Cover the area with a plastic glove or plastic cling film for an hour or two.

    3- Remove the plastic covering and wash the area with soap and warm water. Repeat the lanolin or petroleum jelly application if needed.

    When dry, it will not come off easily.

    Soak your skin in as hot water as you can stand two or three times per day. eventually it will either rub off, or you will be able to peel it off. Do not force it off or you will tear off one or two layers of skin.

    It is much easier and healthier to wear gloves when using foam than trying to remove it afterwards.

    I used a ped egg! Worked great! Doesn't take off a layer of skin lik a pumice or sandpaper

    You don't! it will wear off in a few days, but once dry, nothing will take it off. Maybe sandpaper or pummice stone will wear it off along with a layer of skin, but that's the only way.
