To keep my workbench free of paint and varnish spills as well as glue drips, I mounted a retractable vinyl window shade to one end. Before a messy operation, I pull the shade across the bench and clamp the end to the bench. Cleanup is a snap. I simply let the mess dry and retract the window shade. Much of the dried drippings peel off as the shade rolls up.
