What do you guys use for getting tubular glue off of your hands after gluing up your tubs? I'm messier than I remember after wrestling on a particularly tough set of FMBs. I'll probably leave some glue on to seal up the blisters:D . But for the rest, nailpolish remover doesn't seem to cut it, and I'm not so keen on dunking my hands in lacquer thinner.
I've tried gloves for gluing in the past, and just ended up getting the gloves stuck to the wheels--bare fingers seem to work best for me, but cleanup is turning out to be a pain.
Thanks

You can get this stuff that's designed to remove the wax residue after hair removal waxing. It works pretty well to get mastik off.

One tip to make easier to get the tire on is to mount it on a dry rim after the coats on the base tape are dry. Things shrink up as they dry. Giving it another stretch makes it easier to fire on the rim.
