I am using Amazing Clear Cast resin to 'seal' an item. At shows, I need to safely clean the piece in between client uses without damaging the finish. I have seen many suggestions online but I would rather hear from someone who has experience with this particular product. I do NOT need to clean resin off of anything. I need to clean the resin surface itself. Any suggestions?

Good Morning Cat,
I love the picture!
There are many cleaners on the market some are caustic, some are more natural solutions. I have heard a lot of varying feedback from many who have cleaned both the polyurethane and epoxy resins. A lot of people use to clean items is good old "rubbing alcohol" but that can some times be a bit harsh for the surface of cured epoxy, especially the jewelry applications. (it possibly could tarnish the metal on the jewelry as well) Window cleaner has been used... again the ammonia can wreak havoc sometimes with the metal if it is not dried very well.
I think easy and safely a mild dish soap with a non abrasive cloth and/or a microfiber cloth is the best way to go. Not really hot water, enough to help remove oils from hands that sometimes are on pieces from constant handling. Another good tool, would be a soft bristle tooth brush for the chains or hardware on the jewelry, of course making sure after cleaning all pieces are good and dry prior to any storage.
