    When my grandson and I turned the pens for his parents, the paper towels started to smoke a bit. I tossed them on the bare concrete floor to"settle" down. This way I can count how many coats of CA I have applied rather than rely on my memory. Also, I got the idea of putting them in a can of water and pushing them down with a piece of wood to completely soak them.

    Good tip. I do this outdoors because the fumes are really unpleasant. I prefer using Bounty paper towels because I have found them slower to fume than some other brands. Paper towels are hygroscopic so store them in a dry place indoors for less problems with fuming.
