Tip #27 Treat Rambo Like A Baby!
The Klondike Kid is an avid waterfowl hunter and applying camo paint to my face is as natural as putting on my socks before venturing out on the marshes for a day of fun. I've used quite a few different products, some dusts applied with a sponge, some in tubes resembling oil paints and probably my favorite, the hard pastes that come in a small compact case complete with mirror. And I know there are tens of thousands of turkey, waterfowl and big game hunters who rely on face paints on their hunting trips.
Getting these paints on is easy as pie. Getting them off is a whole new ballgame, and I have been know to return from the duck flats to check my post office box or pick up some groceries and miss a few streaks of black or brown on the side of my face. I'm usually tipped off by the looks I get from the clerk.
I've relied on a product found in Cabela's called "Camou Off" which comes in a plastic container and resembles small round wet patches which removes the face paint very well. The problem is that its pretty pricey when you figure the cost plus shipping for the 50 small pads you get. Then my Cooking Editor, Marylin, tipped me off to a great alternative product that does the job even better, and for a fraction of the cost.
WET ONES moist towelettes come 40 wipes to a container and are often on sale for less than $2 a can. Their 5.75" x 7.5" size will get every bit of face paint off in a single tissue. And to top it off, it has aloe in it to give that duck hunter a baby smooth complexion. Ha! This product is also great to take along on camping trips and fishing trips for that quick cleanup job.
