Cleaning off wet epoxy

Posted by Mark Camp on Mar 2, 2005

There are several choices frequently mentioned for cleaning wet epoxy off the skin (the best idea being 'never get it on your skin') and off of tools.

Vinegar is the most frequently mentioned here.

If you are new to building, and have found that vinegar leaves a residue film of sticky epoxy on your skin or tools, try another common recommendation of the experts: industrial hand soap, the kind with abrasives in it. I think this is the recommendation of Gougeon Bros. but don't quote me.

You have to follow it with water wash.

It works better for me.
