Use Gin to Clean Knot Hole

Back Story: The plug fell out of the knot hole in the floor of my old house. Coincidentally, I was building a spar for the lug sail of AEOLUS and I had left over thickened epoxy. I put the epoxy around the inside of the hole and the outside of the plug and gently hammered the plug back into the hole. See above photo.

Helpful tip: Epoxy had dribbled over the edges and I had run out denatured alcohol that I usually use to cleanup the mess. I remembered I had a new bottle of New Amsterdam Gin. I poured the gin on my clean up rag and cleaned the area around the hole and the plug.
