On regular glass, straight acetone from the hardware store, followed by scotchbrite pad if necessary. Not sure if the acetone would mess with epoxy, though. h

all of these solvents wont hurt it. There is also a graffiti removal spray that u can get at a hardware store... Elbow grease, a scotch pad and a solvent will work.

I've heard in the past that epoxy and acetone are two great tastes that DON"T go well together.

I think it has led to epoxy intolerance in surfboard glassers.


yes, I ride a pool toy.

I once used straight Xylene on epoxy to get tail pad residue off. No ill effects. It's one of the ingredients in goo-gone, but I think as of 1/1/2010 it became illegal to buy it straight in CA. Freakin' tweekers!
