Expanding foam sealant is almost impossible to remove from skin, clothing and there surfaces. This sealant is typically branded Great Stuff® or from Dow® and helps fill in gaps in panels, roofing, around windows and more. When the expanding foam is released, it can drip or continue to expand even after application. De-Solv-it Contractors’ Solvent can remove expanding foam sealant before it hardens. If you keep a bottle on hand for untimely spills, you’ll avoid impossible removal challenges after the expanding foam hardens.
You only have seconds to react before expanding foam sealant cures, so what do you do when it gets on your hands? You can wait a few days for the residue to wear off naturally with friction, poke and pick at it endlessly, or use sand paper. Or better yet, the pro strength citrus cleaning solution, De-Solv-it Contractors Solvent, can be used to settle this sticky mess. The orange powered remover is easy to use, and safe on skin and hair.
How to remove expanding foam sealant with Contractors’ Solvent™
To remove expanding fan sealant from the skin on your hands, spray Pro Strength Contractors’ Solvent directly on the foam sealant on your skin. Spread it around and work it into your hands like you would when washing with soap and water.

Reapply this amazing citrus solvent until your skin is foam sealant residue free.

The same action can be applied to other surfaces and be sure to see surface compatibility on the De-Solv-it label. Active ingredients include organic wetting agents and essential oils; it contains no benzene, toluene, chlorinated solvents, bleaches or oxidizers.
This 100% organic, 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly orange cleaner will leave natural oils on your hands. To remove, simply wash your hands with soap and warm water and apply lotion as necessary.
