How to Get Super Glue Off Skin
Super glue is very handy and can effectively help you fix a lot of things. However, it can also be really sticky and painful to remove, especially if you try to peel it off using only brute force, something you should never do. 5-Minute Crafts has listed 7 different things you can do to get glue off your skin quickly and pain free.
1. Soap in warm water
If the glue is still not fully dried, this can be a great solution. Soak the affected area in a bowl filled with warm soapy water. Once the glue is soft, you can start peeling the glue off your skin.
2. Salt and water
Mix water and table salt until it forms a thick paste. Rub the paste into the skin for a minute or 2. The salt will help scrub off the glue.
3. Lemon juice
Pour some lemon juice into a bowl and soak the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes. Then use a soft toothbrush or cotton swab to rub the lemon juice. Then you can rub your skin with a dry washcloth to loosen the glue. Wash your hands and moisturize afterward.
4. Coconut oil and baking soda
Make a paste with equal parts coconut oil and baking soda. Let the mixture sit on the affected area for 10 minutes. Once it starts to get soft, you can try to peel the glue off.
5. Olive oil
6. Laundry detergent
Mix 1/4 cup of detergent in a coffee cup of warm water. Rub the mixture on your skin for 20 seconds or until the glue starts to come off.
