I used that crap many times and as much I know there isn't any chemical
that you can wash off that I know of Wear out that is about it.
Unfortunately, I've never found anything that will remove spray foam. At
least nothing that wouldn't harm me more. :)
It'll wear off in a few days.
I always slip on a pair of nitrile gloves (the blue ones) before I mess
with that stuff. I also keep a plastic grocery bag nearby I can toss the
can and nozzle in when I'm done with it. Otherwise, the stuff keeps
expanding out of the nozzle and gets all over everything.
I switched to nitrile gloves a few years ago. Regular latex gloves would
break down and start ripping apart when exposed to wood stains and similar
chemicals. Then my fingers ended up stained anyway, kind of defeated the
purpose of wearing them. The nitrile gloves seem much more resistant to

I mentioned vinyl, you mentioned latex.
Would the vinyl gloves have the same breakdown problem?
I keep a few boxes of vinyl gloves around since they are cheaper than nitrile. I use those for
some jobs like cleaning the dog's crate and other jobs where I don't really need the durability
or dexterity of the nitrile gloves. No sense in wasting the "good" ones.
Hmm... I don't know. I'm thinking of the traditional tan colored gloves.
I've always called them latex, but maybe they are vinyl. I've never really
paid attention. They're the cheap ones. :) They work OK for quick tasks,
but as I mentioned they tend to fall apart when I'm staining woodworking
projects. It's like the solvents dissolve the gloves.
I also don't like that white powder inside the cheap gloves. My hands sweat
inside the gloves, then I end up having to wash that goop off my hands when
I take them off. :)
The blue nitrile gloves hold up much better, and don't have that powdery
I've used the green gloves too. Don't know what they are made of. I think
they're supposed to be even more durable, but they cost more and don't seem
to fit as well.
A box of nitrile gloves lasts me a long time, so the minimal cost
difference isn't an issue.
Most times I just put a glove on one hand, since the other hand isn't
really getting dirty anyway. The gloves tend to last twice as long that
I would try vinegar. May take some time but it can degrade
polyurethane. Looking it up, there is advice on cleaning polyurethane
coated floors with vinegar but one site says it dulls the finish,

It wasn't hand cream but it didn't burn like KleanStrip. That stuff is
one of the few times I break out the gloves and I mean heavy duty
