Rub your fingers on a sheet of sandpaper laid flat on the bench. This will get off all types of adhesives that you want to get off your hands before washing them.

You can also rub your hands with Crisco or some other greasy substance and the sticky stuff will roll right off
It's a little easier on the hands. Can be used to remove tar, pine pitch, gum and etc. also.
I recommend using baking soda instead. It's much gentler on the skin.
I wouldn't do it - far too rough on the skin!
A drop or two of washing up liquid plus 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar (the coarse kind) makes a good handwash for sticky and greasy residues.
Better still - wear gloves and don't get the glue on your hands at all!
