- Q.What is the best
way to clean polyurethane adhesive from skin? How about
A.The best idea is to
wear gloves and not get it on your skin to begin
with. I use cheap vinyl gloves from
Grainger’s. If polyurethane glue does get
on your skin, wipe it immediately with a waterless
hand cleaner. After it dries, the only way to
remove it is to use an aggressive pumice-based hand
cleaner, which will remove most of the glue (and
part of your skin). The dried glue will wear off in
about a week.
On carpeting, the last thing I would do is try
to clean it by wiping it with anything containing
water. Naphtha should remove the bulk of it,
without initiating curing.
