Removing sikaflex from hands

I've found something that works!

They are called 'mangers ultra wipes' and they took a load of 2-day old sikaflex off my arm. It says on the can that they remove silicone so I tried it.

Beats acetone anyday!

Also 3M paint shop wipes do the same. Come in a bucket of 100 and will take off antifoul sealant also cleans up tubes a treat aswell as removes marks from GRP and Hypalon.

a dab of white spirits on a cloth works very well
