Any ideas on how to get dried 5200 off of skin? I scrubbed and scrubbed but no luck. I'm sure acitone would work but I'm out!

Avoid any solvents, they are more toxic than the 5200.
Hot water and dish soap to soften the skin,
then use a nylon scrubbing pad to scour your hands.
just like taking cooked on grease from the baking pan.

Next time, use gloves!
Remember rule #1: If you're gettin' dirty, y'er doin' it wrong!

before it dries - 3m 5200 is easily removed with CRC,off your hands and skin...

soap water and a "dobie" - those abrasive scrubbing pads work well.

For making super clean installs, and cleaning it off your hands before it dries, use WD-40! I'm not sure why it works, but it makes all installs super easy. Just apply, install fittings, then spray WD-40 on a rag and wipe off the extra mess.

For dried on skin, I've always used acetone cause I'm not patient, but I did use the "environmentally safer" paint thinner once and it worked well.
