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.
