          I had no problems with this product . I found that if you keep the lid on and always use the product on top all around the top layer I had no problem with skinning over. Clean the edge of can and put some Vaseline around the lid rim when you are done for the day ,close it tight and you will have no problem getting it off the next day. take a razor and cut around the skin at the wall off can and lift it out and you are ready to go again.

                    Comments about Bostik's Best Adhesive:

                    Great adhesive! Not that I have anything to compare it to as this was my first adventure in flooring.

                    I used it to lay 3/4" x 2-1/4" Millrun Classic Gunstock Oak over concrete. Which was a bit thicker than recommended but it worked fine. The glue holds great and allowed for plenty of time to make adjustments to the flooring before it set. Also it's made for an unbelievably solid feel in the floor. I was more than a little surprised when I first stepped on a section that had completely cured.

                    As for installation, it couldn't have been easier. Laying out the wood took longer than actually gluing it down. Though I will say that you need to be mindful of where the glue is going so as not to get it all over you, your tools, your shoes, the floor... your dog.

                    Even still, cleaning up mistakes was a breeze with a little mineral spirits on a rag. And as another reviewer mentioned, there's no need to thoroughly clean your trowel every day. Just scrape it off on the edge of the bucket before you set it down after each use and you'll be fine. Either way, once dried the glue has the consistency of soft rubber and can be easily scraped off or cut with a razor if necessary.

                    The best piece of advice I can offer to anyone laying real hardwood is to have ratchet straps on hand for removing the gaps between boards. Most of the wood is going to have a slight warp and 3M painters tape just doesn't cut it. Also, make sure your first row is straight; if you are going to use glue for this row, and not nails as the instructions suggest, be sure to allow for an extra day before you start laying the floor so this row can permanently set. After that you can push, hammer, clamp, and strap until your heart's content. Good luck!

                      Comments about Bostik's Best Adhesive:

                      Material gave plenty of time to apply. Best to trowel it to exactly 1/4 x 1/4 v groove with minimal material on the concrete floor. Will need 1 trowel per day where it is hard to clean material for next day usage. No need to tape trowel. Just keep scraping off in bucket. Follow Bostik direction for plywood application. Kerf every 8 inches, try to use flat sheets and have weights to hold down panels that might lift in the center. Recommend wearing leather work gloves to keep hands from blisters. I completed 6, 5 gal pails, 1200 sf in 2 days. Lumber liquidators great to work with and took back pails that were not used.

                          Here’s something you can try! (Always test on scrap board or in an inconspicuous area first).
                          1.) Using the Ultimate Adhesive Remover towelette (or a mineral spirit dampened clean rag) and place on the spotted area, let stand for 10 minutes or so.
                          2.) Take an original Mr Clean Magic Eraser (This is a foam pad found in the cleaning section in most grocery stores). Use the foam side. Some have a scouring pad on 1-side that is too aggressive. Buff the area with the Magic Eraser in the long direction of the plank.
                          3.) Get a clean white cotton cloth and/or micro-fiber cloth, very lightly dampened with water, wipe off the residue you created.
                          Sorry no guarantees.
