dipple, v. To try to remove a sticky something from one hand with the other, thus causing it to get stuck to the other hand and eventually to anything else you try to remove it with.
Plenisette might not have been quite the right word the first time, since I'd somehow read "cellophane" as "cellophane tape". At least dipple also fits the bill.
