Even the most persnickety of woodworkers rarely avoids an oops with freshly mixed epoxy adhesive. Accidental drips and smears quickly show up on the materials being joined and on the worker's hands. Trying to wipe up these little messes before the epoxy sets often falls short of success.

Dampen a clean cloth with white vinegar that contains 5 percent acetic acid. Then, quickly wipe up the epoxy before it has a chance to set.
