Chuck, et al.
Funny you should mention that. I was playing with some fiberglass this
When I'm working with it, I put on a pair of disposable baggy plastic
I was getting 3 boxes of 100 gloves for $5 at Costco. I also wear them when
I'm playing with POR-15.
Then to clean the residue off after cleaning up, if it hasn't hardened yet,
I use lacquer thinner.
BTW, check with your local auto paint supply store, I get a 5 gal. can of
very cheap lacquer thinner (cleaning grade only) for about $18. Beats using
the $18/gal stuff!
Also Acitone (sp) will work also.
