Glue is usually designed with permanence in mind, making it incredibly difficult to remove. Depending on the glue, you may find that a simple soap and water rinse just is not enough to get the job done. Different types of glue require different procedures for removal. Before you attempt to remove glue, be sure you're approaching the situation with the right supplies.
Things You'll Need
- Cleaning cloth
- Cotton-tip swabs
Place a small amount of acetone on a cotton-tip swab or clean cloth. Acetone can be purchased on its own or found in some brands of nail polish remover.
Gently rub the acetone on a small, unnoticeable area of the surface. This helps you make sure the acetone will not permanently damage the surface.
Rub the glue spot with the acetone cloth until the glue is removed. Repeat for any other affected areas.
White School Glue
Soak a clean cloth in hot tap water for five minutes.
Place the cloth on top of the glue stain and leave it for a couple of hours.
Check to see if the stain has softened and wipe it away with a clean, dry cloth. Continue this process until you have safely removed all of the glue.
