Do yours change colour outside? Our friends to the east of us have potted aloe that goes taupe or brown outdoors, and back to green indoors.

Lately i've done a roof, change the slates and my hands got ridiculously dry with cracked fingertips and small pieces of slate stuck in the skin ,then i worked the soil quite a bit and calusses turned black and i couldn't shrub it out any longer. It was a terrible state. Very happy to have Aloe Vera handy. Just keep rubbing i in while watching some youtube, then rub the calusses and it kind of dissolves it, then add some more aloe, then rubbing etc,etc it got the dirt out.
was more what I was thinking. Or just chopped up and let the bugs do it for you. I know a guy in Arizona who did this with priclkly pear leaves
a slurry on its own for the same purpose?
