Yeah but you'd do the same if you had treacle on your hands, or had handled
chillis. No need to be
frightened of this stuff.
The remover that is a jelly consistency is not so bad. Wear gloves if you feel
you need it, but
usually its enough to just wash your hands in running water if you get more than
just drops on your
hands, mainly to avoid touching painted surfaces you want to keep.
When I first painted the front doorway with 2 side windows, the paint
remover was jelly like, just made sure I covered all the spots, let it sit
and easily scrap off. That stuff was so nasty, I hope I wont have to do that
again. I did use gloves and had my shirt over my mouth, breathed as little
as possible.I do have a respirator which helps a lot with the pvc cement and
primer, wood dust and spray paint.

A lot. I learned about this last June. Too much of a hurry, put a
wide painted board through my planer. The board had been on my house
since it was built 60+ years ago. I got 4 passes on freshly sharpened
knives before they just wouldn't work anymore.
Live and learn.
The knives have been resharpened.
