Super Glue is designed to stick fast and stay stuck once it dries. It's useful for when you need to put something together, but if it gets somewhere it isn't supposed to by accident, then it can be difficult to remove. Removing Super Glue from delicate surfaces like plastic glasses takes a little bit of patience because you don't want to scratch the surface, but it can be done using common household products.


Step 1

Fill a container with water. The container should be large enough to fit the plastic glasses inside of it.

Step 2

Mix mild soap into the water, such as a mild dish detergent or baby soap.


Step 3

Soak the glasses in the soapy water until the Super Glue loosens.

Step 4

Wipe the surface of the lenses with a microfiber cloth, while they're still in the soapy water.


You can use acetone to loosen the Super Glue as well; however, acetone melts certain plastics. If you use acetone, use a cotton swab to apply it directly to the Super Glue, and keep it away from the plastic material.
