    Used this stuff. After using I wiped over with damp cloth. I guess lighter fluid isn't a healthy chemical to put on an eating surface so will wiping it with another cloth remove that or it'll evaporate? 20210916_111509.jpg

    If this was a plate, you'd probably put it in the washing up (I hope)! :)

    Lighter fluid is an especially pure form of petrol. Once it has evaporated, there should be no smell or residue.

    I'm convinced this thread is a wind up.

    We are old-fashioned and use plates for eating off. I've accidentally tried once just pouring spag bol straight on the mat but found it kept running off the edge. Is it safe to eat off the table?

    Only if the table is finished with a food safe finish...

    Should make it clean enough to eat off, though

    Could use isopropyl alcohol, which will completely evaporate away and is perfect for things like this.
