Whether it's Super Glue, Krazy Glue, or any other brand name, cyanoacrylate is a stubborn adhesive that is very difficult to remove from your countertops. Nevertheless, it somehow finds its way out of the tube and on places where it shouldn't be. Luckily, a few methods allow you to remove these glue spots without too much trouble.
Things You'll Need
- Acetone (nail polish remover)
- Goo Gone
- Razor blade
Use a rag to dab the glue If you have just spilled the glue and it hasn't set completely. Avoid wiping, as it may just spread the spillage around. Don't use tissue; the fibers will cling to the glue spot.
Apply the acetone to the dried glue on your countertop. Give it a few seconds to soak in before testing the glue with the scraper or razor blade to see if it has softened or if you are able to chip off flakes of the glue.
Use more acetone as needed. Once the glue feels like it will budge, carefully use the blade or scraper to remove it from the countertop. Be careful not to damage your countertop. Digging too hard or deep with the razor may damage or remove the finish of your counter.
Try Goo Gone if the acetone doesn't work. Goo Gone is designed to remove any number of gooey, greasy or sticky substances from surfaces.
