Super glue is great when you want to use it but when it accidentally lands where you don’t want it to, it’s not so great. Thankfully there is a great DIY method for removing glue so that you don’t have to throw out whatever it lands on accidentally.
You just need a bit of nail polish remover and a Q-tip. Nail polish remover is also great and will take the super glue off quickly. Just dab it on the glue until you notice it beginning to dissolve. Be sure that you do not rub the glue because that will spread it and it will be harder to remove.
Keep dabbing at it and removing it with a paper towel until it’s all gone. Once it’s all gone, just clean the area with soap and water or whatever is safe depending on what you are removing the glue from.
Again, never rub super glue to remove it. If you do happen to notice a spill, it’s often best to get it off quickly as opposed to allowing it to set and you should never attempt to scratch or scrape it off because you could end up causing damage to the product in the process. This method works great for most items and will quickly and easily remove that super glue – keep this in mind whenever you are using glue.
