Using Mineral Spirits to Clean Off Glue



My installers are using mineral spirits to clean the glue off of my Bellwood Brazilian Koa. Is this procedure OK?

The adhesive manufactures have stated that wet adhesives can be removed using mineral spirits and many clean rags. However, cured adhesives can only be removed using the manufactures adhesive remover. Note that cured adhesives can chemically etch into the finish damaging it.
