Funny, somehow I thought everyone used MEK for cleanup of tools and hands. Never even thought about using anything else.

Default WD-40

WD-40 works excellently when needing to clean up excess pro seal.

+1

MEK is my go to stuff for clean up of sealant tools but first I try less harsh stuff on my skin. The GoJo Natural Orange works great on the hands IF a small amount of the stuff in on the skin. Last tank sealing I did, I used Nitrile gloves with corn starch on my hands before putting the gloves on. Nothing to clean off the hands when finished.

I really never got much on my hands, only tools. I ALWAYS put on at least three pair of gloves, and peeled off a pair when moving to another phase of use.

Yes - same for working with fiberglass and resin - you'll get messy enough at some point that you want clean gloves but by that time your hands are sweaty and you'll NEVER get another pair on - just double-glove to start with and strip one off. Gloves are cheap.

Check out my blog for Kitplane tips. One is using corn starch on the hands before putting on gloves. I keep it in an old foot powder container.

Default Clean off proseal

The best thing to do is clean it off quickly or soon. Clean off the ProSeal while it is still wet or curing. Totally easier the first few hours then later. Next day and you'll have to use the 3 week soap and water method.
