If you're a DIYer, crafter, model-builder, you've probably spilled at least a little super glue along the way. A spill on carpet might seem disastrous, but if you act quickly, you should be able to get the super glue out of the fibers.
Things You'll Need
- Nail polish remover with acetone
- Cotton balls or swabs
- Dry-cleaning solvent

Dab up the excess super glue with a white paper towel or clean white cloth. Test the nail polish remover on an inconspicuous area of the carpet -- such as a corner or inside a closet -- to make sure it won't damage the fibers.
Soak a cotton ball or the tip of a cotton swab in the nail polish remover. Dab it lightly onto the stained area; the acetone in the remover should dissolve the super glue quickly. Blot the area immediately with a clean cloth.
Repeat Step 2 until all the super glue has been removed from the carpet. If any granule-like bits remain, gently scrape them off with your fingernail or a fork.
Dip a white paper towel or cloth in dry-cleaning solvent. Dab at the stained area to remove any acetone remaining on the carpet. Blot the area with a dry portion of the towel until all the solvent is removed.
