What do you use to clean Devcon off measuring spoons, etc.??

I really like the Devcon 10110 but I don't know what to use to clean it off the measuring containers. I've been using one set for resin, another set for hardener, wiping them as clean as I can with a paper towel, and storing them in seperate containers. I was wondering if there is anything that will clean the resin and hardener off that won't eat the plastic measuring spoons?

Thanks
Fitch

    Try alcohol, it will cut the devcon when it is still soft and should not dissolve the plastic.

    I wonder if it is the aummonia in the boreshine ... if so, some household aummonia might work. I'll give that a try. I also have some methanol that I use to clean off the release agent - I'll try that too. Two good suggestions.

    Thanks folks.

    Here's what Devcon recommends.


    ITW Devcon | Clean | Parts

    Also, you can get Stainless spoons at any restaurant supply.

    It's amazing what good old fashioned HOT and soapy water will do.

    It's all I use for Devcon. Works great!

    Simple green is the soap!

    Who'd a thunk it? I'll give that a try tomorrow.
