If you have ever tried to clean the insulating foam in a can off of your hands or your tools, or urethane adhesives, or oil paint, or dried latex caulking?. you will rejoice at this nifty innovation that showed up at my door recently.

Simply called "Hand and Tool Towels" by Bostick, they come in a bucket, have a smooth side for hands and a rough side for tools and they do indeed remove the stuff that I have never been able to get off. They do say that if you want to remove urethane adhesive residue from hardwood floor finishes, do it within 24 hours. This way, the towel removes the urethane but not the finish.
