Household product that removes CA Glue residue…and the Dan & Odie Show No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Calico Polish Off Artifical Nail and Polish Remover. Excellent and effective product for removing CA glue build up from fingers. I haven’t had the need (knock wood) to separate my fingers from themselves or a workpiece using this product, so I do buy the Super Solvent that is a shelfmate of the other Hot Stuff Cyanoacylate glues I use. However after fiddling with some inlay banding today, I developed a thin coat of CA on the fingers. At $2.99 the Polish Off (with Acetone) is significantly less expensive for removing dried CA on the skin than the industrial product, plus it has Vitamins A & E for the hands that loved to be touched and admired. Don’t use it if you just had your french tips done. ;^)

A little on a washcloth and it’s back out to the shop.

I typically use 150 grit sand paper, but I’m guessing this stuff is a bit easier on the skin.

Your secret is safe with me Doug. Does it act as hair remover or restorer as well?. LOL

I always knew you were just a little too sensitive. :-)

But seriously, being comfortable enough to admit using such a feminine product proves that you are secure in your masculinity. (There… I think I covered you, Sweetie.)

Only thing I wear with straps are Carhardt’s. Can’t even imagine wearing butt floss, Doc.

Uh Spanky…I take it that in your 86 days on the site you’ve yet to encountered either Dan, Grumpy or Odie’s posts. I, before the rain of insults and innuendo was merely attempting to point out a worthwhile substitute for a product that retails at $5.98 for 4 oz. versus a product that goes for $2.99 for 8 oz. and might be found amongst the household items, should your find yourself in need of an emergency debonding.

Hope I didn’t muck up YOUR pristine WW site. Again…Sheesh.

I can assure you Matt, there’s a 4 in 5 chance that Dan is actually readying something to post right here as we type…
