Acetone isn't quite so bad on the skin. It used to be I had problems buying acetone without oil having been added, since it was sold as nailpolish-remover. Since pure acetone will dry out yor skin, oil was added. This of course made the stuff unusable for my purposes. So I couldn't source my mothers supply. I had to buy my own bottles. 😄 Then again, avoiding contact and breathing the stuff, is of course preferrable.
