How to Clean Polyurethane Glue from Your Skin

What You'll Need
Mineral spirits
Pumice soap

If polyurethane glue has come into contact with your skin, you may be wondering how to clean if off. With a few common household items, getting polyurethane glue off skin can be a simple, stress-free undertaking.

Step 1 - Apply Your Mineral Spirits

Begin by using a washcloth to vigorously scrub the infected area with mineral spirits. Once the area has been sufficiently scrubbed, rinse it under a faucet. You may want to repeat this process once or twice before proceeding with the next step.

Step 2 - Apply Your Pumice Soap

After rinsing off your mineral spirits, you'll be ready to apply your pumice soap. Using either your hand or a clean washcloth, scrub the infected area with a bar of pumice soap. Continue doing this until the polyurethane glue begins to loosen, after which you'll be able to pick away any loosened pieces of glue with your hands.

Once all the glue has been successfully purged from your skin, rinse off the pumice soap, then carefully inspect your skin. Should you locate any hitherto undiscovered glue deposits, repeat steps 1 and 2.
