Hand sanitizer as a spirit gum release
I may have missed this if it is in any of the lessons but I found that gel hand sanitizer is 100 percent efficient as a spirit gum release and hairpiece cleaner. I might be missing something critically important here but I tried it because my other release chemicals were ho hum pathetic and made my skin irritated. I had no such luck with labeled spirit gum remover nor with alcohol. I tried the gel as it keeps it in one place and will not pour down my neck when releasing a beard. I was being exceptionally lazy and glued my beard to my own facial hair because I am growing my own beard for a different cosplay. The alcohol gel hand sanitizer released my beard and removed ALL.... yes, ALL of the spirit gum on my face in a single pass, wiping with a paper towel. During application, I massaged the gel into the areas I knew to have gum. There was no evidence of residue on my skin or in my beard. Please let me know if there is a health hazard or otherwise that I am missing. Did I mention that it is cheap?
