Recently I had a cut on my finger that would not heal, I’m not kidding I had it for over a month and a half!!! So finally I turned to the most non-medical thing and decided to super glue my cut together. It worked but in the process of putting it on my cut, I also got it all over my other fingers, which left my wondering how to get super glue off my skin.
Here’s the simple solution that I discovered: nail polish remover. It quick, easy and in just a few seconds my hands were glue free, except for my cut, of course. The only catch is that the nail polish remove must have acetone in it. If you have pure acetone that would work great too!
Rub the nail polish remove on your skin with a cotton ball. It will make the super glue turn really white like in this picture.
Peel the glue off with your other fingers and then rub it with more nail polish remover, as needed. It took me a couple wipes with the cotton ball and I got mine off.
If you have a friend that’s a crafter, pass this tip onto them because I can guarantee that at some point they’ve had super glue on their fingers!
NOTE: Don’t use nail polish remover to get the super glue off any sensitive skin area, like your eyes or lips (which you shouldn’t be putting super glue there anyways). 🙂
