How do I clean epoxy resin tools?(spatulas, mixing cups, bowls, etc.)

 

Clean up is never fun. You have the options of using chemicals or nonchemical methods.

NON- CHEMICAL METHOD

Tools -

  •  wax paper non- stick cooking spray    
  •  dish soap
  •  paper towels

Steps -
1. Lay wax paper down as a base where to clean your tools
2. While the resin is still wet scrape as much material as you can from the surface using a paper towel ( from all the tools that you have used)
3. spray the nonstick cooking spray into the measuring cups and then add dish soap as well
4. with your brush stir making sure that you scrape all sides
5. wipe the measuring cup and the brush tools that you have used) with paper towel
6. rinse them with warm water and soap
7. dry all tools with paper towels - once thoroughly dry they are ready for reuse!
