+1 for baby wipes, but definately the cheapest ones you can find, the more expensive ones (Johnson and Pampers) really do not work as well.

It also works for the glue used to put down wooden floors onto concrete... I am so happy I knew that when I lost balance when doing and awkward area of my floor and covered my arm from elbow to fingers in the floor glue.

Being so good for this application, I really don't understand why stores can sell them as baby wipes, even the most friendly wipes are bad enough to a babys skin!

Even more potent are the wipes intended for removing camouflage face paint.

Thanks, will try that one! Baby wipes, that's a new one for me, must try, kind of worrying that they works though....
fun on a boat is inversely proportional to size...sort of anyway

In my experience Martini's acetone and a carefully tweaked, ie razor sharp and very straight blade with no dents, stopping knife (not sure if correctly translated, i mean the hand tools for applying filler) at the right angle will do the trick. However some practise on unseen or covered surfaces is advisable: It is important to scrape the sika and not any polyester or gelcoat so the blade is almost paralel to the object with the sika and easy very easy doest it ... Baby wipes: have no experience with them....

Good luck!

Hi there,

Had to say that after a scrape with a putty knife the baby wipes did the rest so I'm well pleased.
