How To Remove Super Glue Residue From Any Surface

Super glue is an amazingly versatile helper to have around the house, since it will bond and fix so many things.

For those who have used the … well, super adhesive, you know it works wonders on everything from home fix-ups to your latest craft project. But when the substance gets on surfaces it’s not supposed to, you’ll find the sticky situation can be more than frustrating .

Luckily, there’s a guide to getting Super Glue out or off of nearly everything.

First of all, if you do get your fingers stuck together with super glue, don’t pry them apart! You could tear your skin and injure yourself, and it isn’t necessary to do that. Here’s what you should do if you need to remove super glue residue from your fingers:

Fill a small bowl with warm, soapy water. Soak the affected fingers {or other skin area} in the soapy water for a few minutes. Then while your fingers are still soaking, use a blunt object, like a kitchen spoon, to help pry apart your fingers.

Second: To remove super glue from fabrics, it depends on what type of fabric it is.
Nail polish remover with acetone.

First, add a small amount of acetone to a clean cloth. Check to be sure the acetone won’t damage your affected surface by spot-treating an inconspicuous area. Wait 10 minutes to see if the acetone is too harsh for the surface. If it’s not, reapply acetone to the cloth and dab the liquid on to the dried glue. Then, gently scrub off any residue with a soft-bristle toothbrush, adding more acetone as needed.

Once the stain is gone, dampen a clean cloth with water and dab the area to remove any remaining acetone. Finally, use a clean cloth to dry.
