Epoxy Removal from Skin

I have been reading comments on Sailing Anarchy that Acetone is a good means to remove epoxy as it is naturally produced by the human body.

I have used vinegar with success, carefully rinsing tools and skin...not so sure white vinegar is not a solvent type, meaning it would pass through skin in some proportion.

Wear Gloves

This works good, old fashioned flake salt, good olive oil, you can add seaweed.

It's an old remedy but cost a fortune if you get it at a cosmetic counter.

But it’s cheap to make and replaces the needed oil you may strip with toxic cleaners.

When you’re done with it give it to your wife.

It removes dead skin and the say if you rub it dally on cellulite it goes away.

But if you wish to stay clean stick to wood.

ACETONE IS A SERIOUS CARCENOGENIC......
USE WHITE VINEGAR.





Alternative

Washing up liquid and sugar makes an effective
abrasive if nothing else is available, a dab of E45 or other hand cream afterward is beneficial.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Wood Boat Net.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.

So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
