I assume you are talking about foam insulation from an areosol can. There stuff is a bear to clean up. has to be cleaned up as soon as it gets on a surface. I only have a few suggestions.

1. Find the manufacturer from the can and locate their address from either the can or the internet and ask them for help. They may know of a solvent that will disolve the form.

2. Scrape off the excess foam with a razor blade being careful not to scratch the fiber glass.

3. Use a non scratch cleaning pad with a solvent. Use ventalation with any solvent.

4. Do not use any abrasive material as that will scratch the fiberglass.

5. Contact a fiberglass refinisher and see if they have any answer. You can find them in the yellow pages or on the internet.
