How to Clean Epoxy Resin Tools

Posted on 14 Oct 14:32

Here's a quick and easy video on how to clean your tools after using ArtResin!

This video is part of our Video Friday series featuring Dave's handy tips and a catchy but awful theme song that may get stuck in your head. :)



To clean your tools, just wipe them off with a paper towel and set them down on a silicone mat (resin pulls off cleanly from silicone and won't stick whatsoever).  If you want to do a more thorough cleaning job, get some rubbing alcohol, pour it on a paper towel or cloth, and wipe down the tools again.  Then wash with hand soap and hot water.  This works for plastic stir sticks, epoxy resin spreaders and mixing cups.

Though you should always wear gloves when working with ArtResin, from time to time you may get some resin on your skin.  In this instance, simple hand soap and hot water will work, or you can use that orange soap that is marketed towards construction workers.  It's a manly exfoliating soap that'll also do a good job in cleaning up resin.  Use it with DRY hands, then wipe it off, and then use soap and water.  That's all it takes!  Cleaning up is easy. :)
