I always make it a point to wear vinyl or latex gloves when using epoxy, but it’s almost impossible to avoid getting it on you. One reason for avoiding contact is that people can build up sensitivity to it. Once that has happened, it’s just like any other allergy—something you dare not expose yourself to again.

When I do have to clean it up, I always use vinegar instead of acetone. Works as well, if not better. You need to rub it around and rinse frequently with more vinegar. Unlike acetone, it’s not volatile and is non-toxic.
