Super glue is a fierce bonding material used to repair and attach many different types of materials. It also comes in several different brands and strengths. Hardened super glue is extremely difficult to remove without the aid of another substance. Spills or drips of unwanted glue might be have you panicking if you think that there is no way to remove it from surfaces. Take a deep breath and read on. This substance is actually relatively easy to remove if you have acetone.
Things You'll Need

Pour some acetone-based fingernail polish remover on a cotton square.
Hold the square over the hardened super glue for 5 minutes.
