Polyurethane Spills -- How do I Clean-Up?


I managed to drip polyurethane on a tile floor while finishing my last woodworking project. Unfortunately, I didn't notice it until after it had dried. What can I use to dissolve and remove it?
Thanks, SW

I would have said C-4 but I have to admire your penache (what the hell... style!)

Ceramic Tile? Scrap it up with a straight edged razor blade.

The fine print on the can should tell you what to use. Chances are it's lacquer thinner or paint remover.
If the tile has a glossy finish it may not adhere to tile so well that you might be able to scrape it off with a fingernail, or maybe lift it off with a razor blade.

if it's water poly the laquer thinner might work, as might alcohol. if it's oil base poly those probably won't. paint stripper might get it, as might the razor blade mentioned earlier.

A scraper, sharp chisel, or sharp plane blade. Shave it off, you probably won't dissolve it without ruining what it's stuck to. <G>

Try acetone. You can get it at Home Depot.
