    "when in doubt, use fire!"

    i think you need to remove the skin that the Herculiner is attached to... so, ummm, wait a while?

    Xylene works pretty good when it's still pretty wet but I don't know about now.

    If it's anything like POR-15, the skin has to come off for the color to leave your body quickly. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    POR-15 stopped sticking to my skin about 3 days afterwards.

    dude, never ever EVER use xylene to clean your hands!!! anything powerful enough to get dried herc off is definitely toxic and not good for your skin (or over-all health for that matter).

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    I didn't say to use it for a daily facial. There are a lot of things that you can survive if you don't do it regularly. There are things far worse... like breathing exhaust fumes, smoking, drinking alcohol, or touching most household cleaners that probably have more detrimental affects to your health than a once in three years (lifetime?) use of Xylene to get crap off your hands.

    I washed my hands in laquer thinner several times a day when I mixed automotive paint for many years.One day a body shop guy told me I was crazy,that the thinner goes right through the skin and into your bloodstream,could cause blood poisoning and liver damage,and possibly cancer.In june 2001 I was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous tumor on my right testicle--its gone now,had to be amputated-- /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif-I often wonder if it was related to the exposure to the thinner,or just my usual bad luck--anyway,be careful what you wash up with(or get on your skin for that matter)--I used that castrol "Super Clean" stuff on my hands yesterday after spilling diesel fuel on them--they looked like they were 100 years old after that!--no more of that stuff either!.I have had POR-15 on my skin too--its a toss up whether to try and remove it,or leave it until it comes off by itself,I think the solvents used to try and remove it are more harmful than the paint. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
