    A humidifier won't produce warm enough steam. If you can find one of these at a Walgreens or CVS: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Conair-Fac...System/1812246

    Can you lie on your back with a hot (as hot as you can stand), wet facecloth on it for say, half an hour? Keep the cloth WET (Don't wring it out) and change every few minutes as it cools? That's how we get the clay off the horses...

    DO NOT use chemicals; you could damage your skin, or, worse, your eyes and/or mucus membranes.

    I put the lemon back, however, I guess my face/pjs/mindless wandering the aisles, combined with the fact that I smell like a frat party, has made the manager suspicious, so I am sitting in his office awaiting a trooper to come administer a breathalyzer.

    I tried to explain to him the problem.

    He took my wine away.

    There is a really easy solution to this. Go to bed. I'm serious. Just leave it alone for the night, go to bed. Your natural facial oils will come out and soften the mask, in addition it'll give your skin a break from everything you've used to try to get it off. As silly as it sounds, letting it alone for a day or two it will come off by itself from your face producing new skin cells and come off all by itself. It might take a while but it'll be less trauma on your face with less chemicals.

    This is one damn thing after another.

    Once what has to be a nightmare gets worked out, however, it probably will supplant the chicken/oven thread as someone predicted.

    Oh no! I do hope you are joking. If not, this will be one for the ages, to pass down to your grandchildren.

    My kindly husband is suggesting that mechanics hand cleaner may soften the mess and get it off your skin. He suggests the brand Fast Orange may have the most success. Don't use the kind with pumice though.

    Think she's probably been sprung. A mudpack is no worse than curlers, and those both have always been legal though frowned upon in the 50's.

    I think that the manager is following me around as well.
    I think you have a good list though I'm not sure about the lemon. I'm dying as I envision you being followed by the manager. If you're at Walmart perhaps you'll end up on peopleofwalmart.com.
