Apply lotion to your skin before using super glue. It will peel off easily if you get any on you.

What a great idea, Kim from St Louis! I still have nightmares from a nasty practical joke played on me in my teens by the boss's son. I have been super (glue?) cautious of the stuff ever since!

Cheers, Vicki

PS. The boss's son got a dab of Superglue on his work stool. Never tried to play a 'joke' like that again!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am hoping it also works on other sticky type things, I am so glad to know this!

Thank you!

Excellent idea, I never would have thought of that, but your right. I just hope the lotion doesn't keep you from holding the object. It seems like I can't hold on to things as it is, but willing to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

it took me about 3 hours to get rid of most of the crazy glue stuck to my hand. I tried nail polish remover but it wasn't acetone base, therefore it didn't work. What i did is I used a nail file and started scrubbing until most of it came out, then wet my and, applied lotion, and kept going on and one that routine until most of it came out. after a while just use ur nails to take off the rest of the glue.

My tip is the 'antidote' to Superglue, for when you stick yourself to something, your fingers together or even worse to the tube of superglue. Cooking oil and lots of patience will remove or unstick Superglue.

Yesterday, I was working with Super Glue and I wasn't wearing gloves so I got some on my fingers. Today, I was painting with a latex paint, another job without wearing gloves. At lunchtime, I washed the paint from my hands and the Super Glue came off too.

I just wanted to say that, I had super glue all over my fingers and of course freaked out, I checked this post and tried the neosporin and it worked like a charm. You rub it on the areas that are affected and then I took a nail file and it really worked great, thanks for the advice.

So thankful for this page! We didn't have acetone or Vaseline, but we did have A&D ointment based on petroleum jelly. It worked, zero pain and as if nothing happened.

Terrific tips! I just had super glue all over my hand and no access to acetone. I didn't have petroleum jelly or neosporin, but I used petroleum-based lip balm that I had in my work desk drawer and a nail file. whoo hoo! All gone.

Nothing worked for me. Any other ideas? Do you use the nail file while the neosporin is still on the fingers? Any ideas how to get it off corian counters?

All I did to remove a thick coat of superglue from my fingers & back of my hand was use a nail file.

I filed away at the superglue spots for about 3 minutes and WALLAH! All of it was gone, and left my hands soft.

I was concerned that using a nail file would rub my skin raw, but it doesn't at all...just softens it. :)

Acetone nail polish remover. If you have on nail polish and/or sculptured nails when using it just use q-tips to apply and rub the glue off of your skin.

After spending hours trying to scrape off the glue once dry, and using cotton buds soaked in acetone polish remover I decided to cut a lemon in half and poured salt over one of the halves. I then sqeezed the lemon juice while rubbing it on the areas of the dried glue. It removed most of the glue. :) You may want to repeat this a couple of times as I will be now.

Jessii30, are you sure you were using 'acetone' polish remover? I'll venture to bet it was non-acetone instead because acetone would have removed the nail glue in about two or three minutes.

How can I get Instant Krazy Glue Gel off my hand? It dried on the palm of my hand and is rough. I tried dish soap and water, and then WD-40. But the crustiness on my skin still remains.

Hi David! If it is the glue that's rough (and not your skin that became rough), you should be able to remove it with fingernail polish remover with acetate in it. I hope this helps.

My uncle did that once, glued his fingers together actually. I don't know how he removed it, but I know he called the poison control center and they had some ideas.

Put some nail polish remover on a cotton ball and rub your hand, but not too hard or for too long. You may have to repeat this procedure a few times but it should work!

I was trying to glue the leg back on a porcelin horse of mine, and to my dismay I glued my thumb, first finger to it as well. I tried the nail polish remover, all that did was make my skin white in parts (like taking off a band-aide does), so tried the olive oil. That worked very well, and not only that it didn't wreck my skin.

Apply lotion to your hands before using super glue. If any gets on your hands, it will come off easy.
