Super Glue is a very strong type of glue that is used to bond many different types of objects. If you've accidentally dripped it on finished wood in your home, wipe it off as soon as possible. This will prevent it from hardening fully where it will take considerably more time to remove. If you've just noticed an old Super Glue stain, work to remove it as soon as possible to perhaps catch it before it has cured fully. Do not use methods that will damage the finished wood.
Things You'll Need
- Cotton swab
- Plastic credit card
Apply acetone to the end of a cotton swab. Squeeze the cotton swab so it doesn't drip on the finished wood.
Rub the acetone over the Super Glue stain. Be careful to not touch the finished wood with the acetone, as it will dissolve the finish and perhaps the stain as well.
Reapply the acetone as often as needed until just a very thin layer of Super Glue is left.
Scrape off the Super Glue layer with the edge of a plastic credit card. Do not use knives or sharp metal objects to scrape the wood, as they could easily scratch it.
Tips & Warnings
- Work in a well-ventilated area to protect from acetone fumes.
- Acetone is toxic. Keep it away from children
