    Dude,

    That ain't nothin'. I was doin' the POR 15 thing and had to take a bathroom break ... you figure the rest.

    Let's just say posting a picture of the results would get me banned.

    ooooooooooooooh. That's, umm... bad.

    I learned in college that Chemistry lab makes you wash your hands BEFORE you go to the john, for similar reasons involving an acid burn.

    Still, ow.

    Two weeks for it to "wear off" .

    My girlfriend at the time would say, " You fix it before it gets anywhere close to me."

    Fix it?? Like it's a broken toaster or something.

    It was a lonely 2 weeks.

    No, I wasn't the Hurculiner guy. I wrapped myself up real good and went to the bathroom BEFORE Hurculining my truck.

    you misread...

    No,what they REALLY mean is you need to wear the SKIN off to remove it!.. :yikes: :eek: :eek1:


    .I should know,I "tattood" myself with POR-15 more than once--its pretty hard NOT to get some on you!--I tried every substance known to mankind to get it off me!--even carb cleaner didn't take it off!--but it turned my skin beet red!..only sandpaper or time takes POR-15 off!(or if the SKIN peels off first!).... :blush: :crazy:

    Not so grasshopper..... :D MEK will take POR-15 off your skin no problem at all as long as you don't mind subjecting yourself to a potentially toxic solution. Having used POR-15 extensively, I kept a can around at all times. I figured I'll probably die of something else long before MEK exposure catches up with me. I wouldn't recommend cleaning your hootus with it though. Well, unless you have other...........ah..........stuff on there that might benefit from a sterilizing substance......... :whistle:
