How can I get Crazy glue off of my countertop? It's a composite laminate.
By Eli from Brooklyn, NY
Soak the spot for a minute or two with acetone (not non-acetone) nail polish remover and rub well with a cotton ball or soft cotton rag. It will not harm the laminate at all and you won't be risking scratching it.
Finger nail polish remover worked great on a bottle of Super Glue that the bottle developed a hole in it and there was a half inch blob on my counter. It softened it up enough to get a nail file under most of it and with more of using my fingernail scrubbing I got it all off. Thanks for the information!
How do I remove super glue from a Formica counter top?
If it won't pry off with something like the edge of a putty knife, try a tiny amount of non acetone nail polish remover or a debonding solution
Per this link, it's recommended to use a solution and then try to scrape off the superglue with a razor. You can try baby oil, cooking oil, acetone, or nail polish remover.

I need help removing super glue from counter tops.
Polysporin worked for me when I accidentally super glued a puddle onto my grandmother's antique wood table. And unlike acetone or paint thinner, it doesn't damage the table or counter top.

Fingernail polish remover. (12/18/2006)
There is a product called "super glue remover", it works very well. Just don't ever use on or near wood. It is available at many craft supply stores and sometimes in the "fingernail polishes area" of large drugstores. It is in a little green and white bottle, costs about $2, but you only need a drop or 2. (12/29/2006)
