  • How Do I Get This Off?

    I put a new exterior door on last night, and the landlord used some wood spacers under the old door frame to keep it up and level. I left that there, but added some "Great Stuff" foam insulation to seal it a bit better.

    Well during the use the tip of the "straw" on the can broke and I had to just do it without the straw. While that worked just fine now I have this great stuff all over my finger. It's hard and dried. Last night when I tried pulling it off I also ended up taking some skin off. Suck.

    Advice? I've tried soap, and coconut oil thus far. I need something more powerful

    Paint thinner or gasoline would be my guess.

        nail polish remover may be safer

          Been there, done that. As per the can, chemicals won't work. I finally resorted to a fine grit sanding sponge. On the plus side, your skin will be much softer once you get it off.

            I'm going to look like a terrorist in the line with just the nail polish remover & paint thinner - I better hold off on the screws we need for the next door

            I'll give the suggestions a try tonight and see what I can get off. Thanks guys!
