If there isn't enough room than it will be fine this one time.
The sub says, "I've has been doing this for years and there has never been any problems". You should probably let him do his job.
All of the Above
Brush it off and continue to work
Leave it there until you are able to wash it off
Wash it off immediately with water and Neutralite
