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!

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.

Be very careful using a putty knife or nail polish remover as both can damage your counter top if used incorrectly.

  • I would try to soften the glue before using a putty knife, even if it is just with hot water and dish soap.
  • When using a putty knife try placing a thin cloth over the end for a softer end and maybe there will not be any scratches left on your top. Do not press hard but try to just gently push the glue.
  • If trying to use nail polish remover (with acetone) I suggest using a q-tip instead of a rag or paper towel so you can pinpoint just the top of the glue. Always test (under the edge) to see if you can use this on your type of counter top. Sometimes it will remove the top glaze and that cannot be repaired.
  • Here are instructions from a Formica company:
  • Rub over the super glue spot with a nylon scrubbing pad and hot water. Alternate applying the acetone or nail polish remover, gently prying with the putty knife and scrubbing with hot water until the glue is gone.

  • Always test the solvent on an inconspicuous area first to check for discoloration or compatibility issues.
  • Wipe down the laminate counter top with a rag and soapy water to remove any residue.

Try a razor scraper, but be very careful how you apply pressure. The sharp edges can scratch.

I need help removing super glue from counter tops.

Super Glue on a Countertop

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.

Super Glue on a Countertop

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)
