Clever household tips to remove Superglue

 

Baking Soda & Coconut Oil

Mix equal parts of coconut oil and baking soda and apply to skin. Soak the glued area for 10-15 minutes and gently rub with your hands.

Margarine or Butter

Apply butter or margarine to the bonded area, as it softens, fingers will begin to peel apart from each other.

Olive oil

Olive Oil is even great for working your super glued fingers loose. It might take a little longer but if there’s nothing else around it’ll work all the same.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice can work on affected skin and materials to loosen the hold of super glue. Rub onto skin with a cotton swab or with an old toothbrush onto material.

Peanut Butter

The oil content in Peanut Butter can breakdown the bond in Superglue.  Chunky Peanut butter can even work as an abrasive to make the process easier.

Paint Thinners

Naturally as a solvent, paint thinners can work to break down super glue and allow the stuck parts to work free.

Nail Polish Remover

Ensure your nail polish remover contains acetone. Acetone is the ingredient that will breakdown the adhesive agents of super glue.
