Rinsing with soap and warm water

Applying soap to the Mehndi tattoo helps in lifting away some of the pigments. You can also use hot water while washing the tattooed part as hot water helps in the easy removal of pigments.

Rinsing with hot water and soap many times a day can help in removing the tattoo quickly at home. You can choose to moisturize your hands if you feel dry after rinsing your hands.

Soaking in warm water and oil

Pour about 3 tablespoons of oil into a warm water tub. Soak your hands for about 20 minutes in the tub. Do this twice a day to feel better results.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice contains citric acid which helps in natural skin lightening and stain removal.

To do this, cut a lemon into two halves and rub the lemon on the skin gently for about 20 minutes.

Rinse the lemon juice from the skin with warm water and pat dry your skin. Apply moisturizer to your skin if you feel dryness.

If you have soft and sensitive skin, care should be taken before using this method as it may irritate your skin.

Baking soda

Baking soda is an excellent exfoliator in removing stains. To remove mehndi, make a thick paste of lemon juice and baking soda and apply it to your skin and leave it for 10 minutes.

Rinse it with warm water and make sure to moisturize as Mehandi causes dryness on your skin.

Repeat this only once a day because baking soda is a powerful exfoliating agent.

Exfoliating scrubs

You can also try an exfoliating scrub to remove mehndi at home. Mehandi only colors the top layer of your skin. So you can use an exfoliating scrub to remove it.

First, soak the tattooed part in the warm water for 10 minutes, and then use a gentle scrub to exfoliate and remove the dead skin.


Shaving is possible if you have a mehndi tattoo on your arms or legs. Shaving helps in the removal of hair and removal of dead skin cells and helps in the lighting of the tattoo.

Use shaving cream and a clean razor to gently exfoliate your skin. 

Do not forget to apply moisturizer after shaving as it protects your skin from irritation.

Precautions to be taken while removing mehndi

The above-mentioned methods work well in the removal of mehndi. But they cannot give a single time result. It takes some time for the results to be visible.

Also, if you have sensitive skin you might be allergic to some of the methods. So a patch test is always recommended to know whether you are allergic to any of the methods.
