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

Soak the affected skin area in olive oil for around 20 minutes. Then, you can start safely peeling off the glue.

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.

7. Nail polish remover or acetone

Only use this if your skin is not very sensitive. Pour some nail polish remover or acetone onto a cotton ball and start removing the super glue by rubbing the affected area with the cotton ball. Once the glue is dissolved, wash your hands with warm water and soap.
