We all know the struggle of trying to clean epoxy resin off your tools, and yeah it can be a sticky mess. Ready to get those epoxy resin tools sparkling clean without all the mess? Here's our easy-peasy guide on cleaning epoxy resin tools so you can maintain the best resin arsenal and workspace. There are two main ways to remove uncured resin from your epoxy tools - solvents, and the non-chemical method. Let's dive into both so you can decide the best method for you.

1) Non-Chemical Method:

Cleaning Epoxy Resin Tools Using Household Materials


  • Gather your tools: wax paper, non-stick cooking spray, dish soap, paper towels.

  • Lay down wax paper to protect your work area. A clean space is a happy space.

  • Got sticky resin? Scrape it off with a paper towel. Quick, easy, and works especially well with resin before it even begins the curing process. 

  • Spray a bit of non-stick cooking spray into those measuring cups, add some dish soap, and scrub away. 

  • Wipe everything clean with a paper towel.

  • Rinse with warm soapy water and dry them off for next time. Ready for another round of creativity! 


While these methods frequently use products you likely already have in the home, they're not always the most effective method. But they do work great when you're in a pinch!


2) Using Solvents


Working with resin is so much fun! But it can also be a huge pain because it tends to get everywhere - especially when you're just getting used to the material.
