Isopropyl alcohol also dissolves all of your skins natural oils and makes your hands very likely to crack and bleed and feel awful. So here's what I do, I keep a bottle of alcohol (both isopropyl and a curious mixture of barley, hops, and sugar ) on my workbench. I soak a paper towel in the alcohol and as I'm gluing if it gets on my fingers, I finish assembling and clamping and taping whatever I'm working on, then immediately use the paper towel to clean off the glue. I also use the paper towel for cleaning the tip of the gorilla glue bottle so that it doesn't wind up gluing itself shut and I get full use of the bottle instead of winding up with 1/4 of a bottle that has a hacked up destroyed tip from continually trying to dig out cured chunks of glue. Afterwards, use some baby oil or hand lotion to protect from wrecking your skin from the loss of natural oils.
