The acetone in and of itself may be "safe enough". BUT when it dissolves what ever is on your skin it takes that mixture into your skin to be absorbed by your body. The secondary product is the problem, like epoxy, we know is a sensitizer.

I haven't tried it with gorilla glue yet but a good greasy deep fried burrito from the gas station use to take the Dap 4000 construction adhesive off my fingers in only two burritos time. That grease seamed to work its way right between the skin and glue and the glue would just peel right off. I haven't found anything that has work besides time for GG yet.

I use Acetone to rejuvenate my T-PINS .

Let Them soak for a while then wipe off the GG or CA that adhered to them.
A small Nalgene / ethylene cup like the ones on Downy bottles works.

At the cost of a small can of acetone you don't want to waste much of it !

It works on the GG on my fingers but I've always worried about it's toxicity .

Rubber gloves , even cheap ones protect the skin ... The Foamie trailer folks use GG all the time for joining 2" thick foam sheets ..... Gloves are the recommendation ... Harbor Freight has them cheap by the box ...

IPA if is still tacky, however if it dries I just let it wear off. If thick enough I can chew it off but the wife hates that.
I believe the black comes from dirt and grime sticking to your fingers while the glue is tacky.

Huge kudos to anyone who knows how to remove it from clothing once dry. I've lost count of the number of T shirts I've ruined with the stuff.

acetone loosens the stuff up quite well, at least on my T-Pins.

If your clothing is NOT something that acetone dissolves then try it on a spot
for a test.

I HAVE those gloves from Harbor freight or just about any pharmacy but I hat the lack of tactile touch and manipulation
with gloves on. ya know

Instead of a Red Badge of Courage its BLACK Fingers of Building Models.

Nothing else seem to get the job done as quickly as GG fast set.
AND, it's been getting heaper to purchase lately as well.

watchagonnado ! ?! ?!?
