Water and soap.. hell no.
Laquer thinner.. makes it worse. It just spreads it around on your skin.
hrm.... what else?
AHA!!!! WD 40!!!! can't stick to the skin any more, yet its also a solvent, so it thins it out a bit. Use a little mechanical cleaning power, then some gojo fast orange and thats about as clean as you can get your hands for now
i use Mineral Spirits on rough towel followed by hand cleaner such as DL. best is to use latex? or similiar gloves and not get any on to start with - cheap at Home Depot like hundred pairs for $5 or so. try getting Permatex out of your hair if you think that is tough.
