Latex gloves should always be used when working with epoxy. If you should get epoxy onto your skin, it can be cleaned off with a waterless soap immediately, then thoroughly washed with soap and water. Tools can be washed with vinegar or isopropyl alcohol (IPA), acetone or lacquer thinners. The only way to remove cured epoxy is to re-heat to above its glass-transition temperature. For STANLEY Epoxy Super Glue, this would mean heating the epoxy to above 100°C, and then mechanically scraping to remove. Alternatively, heat with a soldering iron and work the tip like a chisel to remove unwanted epoxy.
