Have you tried 'freezing' the glue off? Take an ice cube, hold it against the gloop of glue for a minute (a real 60 second count, you're trying to freeze the glue) then try to flick the now frozen gloop from the upholstery using the edge of a credit/debit card or a loyalty card (Boots, Tesco, NectarPoints, etc).
Once you've got that big gloop off (lol, been-there/done that, it's never a small spot, is it?) any remaining gloop should come off using an acetone based nail lacquer remover, or mineral spirits. Although I've never had those products strip colour from a piece of upholstery, always test the product in a section that isn't seen before using on the spot to be sure your fabric won't strip.

I recently spilled Krazy Glue on my favorite silk black dress. How can I get the glue out without hurting the fabric or fading the color? Is there any hope for my dress? Thank you very much.
If possible, get some samples - even if it means taking a quarter inch off the hem and re-hem it. Then start experimenting. Ammonia gets the wax off floors. Nail polish remover removes the glue on artificial nails, which is pretty much the same stuff. Ethyl alcohol - what the heck. When all else fails - call the manufacturer of the glue - they might have some ideas....you can't be the first one to spill that stuff, I'm sure. Where's the spill? Maybe you could remove it or cover it w/ another piece of silk in a contrasting color. Good luck!
I live in Northern Canada and have found that crazy glue does not hold when frozen on a windshield. Even if it is on a warm surface when applied. Might be worth a try to freeze it. Try dry, then wet and leave in the freezer a few days.

My husband is a fan of Super Glue, he flipping uses it for just about everything. He got some on his suit trousers, grrrrr. I'm afraid if I use acetone it will take the color out. Any suggestions?
It says on the label to use cooking oil if it gets on your skin, not sure if that would be good idea for fabrics. Have you tried freezing the clothing & trying to scrape it off? Like w/ gum. Best Wishes & buy that man an apron! Ha!

I am afraid you are "stuck" with it! :) Sorry, couldn't resist. I don't think there is a way to get it out.
There is a superglue removal liquid you could try. It's usually right next to the superglue in the store.
