Not long ago, I was in a hurry to get finish applied to my newly constructed workbench. I decided to use oil-based poly and didn’t put on a pair of gloves before I commenced with the finish. When I was through, my hands were sticky and uncomfortable. I tried washing and using thinner to clean them, but nothing was working. My wife handed me a bottle of baby oil and suggested I try that. I thought, yeah right, but wouldn’t you know it — it worked! The poly came right off my skin. Give it a try some time.
