Depends what you are using it for. For just clean up of wet epoxy smears on a boat or smoothing fillets, I use denatured alcohol. I think it is a little more user friendly than MEK or lacquer thinner. For cleaning epoxy from brushes or tools, I use 50:50 alcohol and white vinegar. The mix works better than either separately. For a wipe to remove epoxy blush, I wet sand or wash with ammonia water but also have used a lacquer thinner wipe.
