    How do I clean this $hit off my hands??

    I was working on my conversion and sprayed that foam insulation in a can inside the cuts for my motor mounts. I got some on my hands so I went in the house and washed up with go-jo orange. For whatever reason, the stuff became instantly sticky. Rather than wash off, it lathered ALL over my hands and eventually dried. Even acetone will not take it off. Any ideas? I dont want to go to work on Monday looking like this:

    Its now nice and hard. I can pick it off but it only comes off in very small pieces and it takes skin with it when it comes off. This is becoming a big problem.

    This is the shit

    As you can see, the guy in the picture is obviously far more intelligent than I am. He used gloves.

    The FAQ section says it has to wear off once its hardened

    Surely someone else has been in a similar situation before...

    How about a pumice stone?

    That stuff is almost impossible to get off once it has dried.

    Acetone will dissolve the foam when it is still wet, but not afterwards. Acetone is not kind to skin, however.

    Try using a really strong skin moisturizer (hand lotion). Soften the surface of the skin that is sticking to the foam, and you may be able to slowly rub/scrape the foam bits off the skin.

    You are going to be working on this for a long time before it is all gone...
