Super Glue can hold together almost anything, from small refrigerator magnets to cracks in furniture. Super Glue does not discriminate and will adhere itself to any surface. What can you do when some drops of Super Glue get on your desk, floor, or even on your hands?

 
Nail polish remover with acetone can be your best friend in these sticky situations. It can break down the dried up substance from any surface. However, acetone from nail polish is a harsh chemical that can damage some surfaces. Before you begin, apply only a small amount to an inconspicuous spot and wait about 10 to 15 minutes to ensure that the acetone will not eat through your surface. If your surface can handle it, apply some acetone to a dry cloth and start by dabbing at the dried glue until the entire residue is gone. Once the stain is completely removed, use a damp cloth with clean water to get rid of the remaining acetone chemical and odor.

 
If you notice that the acetone is damaging your furniture, sanding it down will be the best alternative. However, this option can also damage your furniture and may require professional assistance. Sanding down the furniture can be tricky and the furniture may require some polish afterwards to blend in.

 
Super Glue is an amazing adhesive that can help you out with any type of project you may have, but always remember to protect your surrounding areas to avoid having to remove it. Once it dries on a surface it can be stubborn to remove. For more information on how to remove super glue refer to our Safety Page. Happy gluing!
