Super-glue removal

It seems no matter how careful I am with the thin super-glues, I get that crap all over my fingers. Tonight, I found a great way to remove it. I stole my daughter's micro-pedi. It grinds it off in no time.

Re: Super-glue removal

Maybe his daughter didn't trust him with her Dremel...

I don't trust myself with the Dremel, I would remove skin.

Acetone and nail polish remover work well.

Re: Super-glue removal

I found that soaking the afflicted fingers in HOT water enables most of the glue to be pulled off. Then I just chew the remainder off while watching the tube.

Re: Super-glue removal

Hi Dave I use just plain sandpaper to remove it- it works great and you have more control on how much skin you remove.

I am similar to Dave except I'm a wee bit smarter. I do the dishes for the wife and then sit and chew the remainder off while watching the tube.

Trouble is, the bonus points I gained while doing the dishes I lose when she hears me spitting out what I chew off my fingers.
