The nature of glass means that even the smallest stain or blemish is very noticeable. Luckily, removing super glue from glass is a quick and easy job. Read on to find out more!

How to get super glue off glass in three simple steps

Removing super glue from glass is surprisingly easy. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Apply Acetone. Acetone is a common ingredient in nail polish remover and is very effective for removing super glue from glass and other materials. Apply the acetone to the glue using a soft cloth.
  2. Leave it to soak. The glue should gradually become looser.
  3. Remove the super glue. Use your fingernail or a razor blade to gently scrape away the glue. Apply more acetone if necessary, and don’t force the glue. Once the glue has been removed, clean the glass with a cloth.

Acetone is an ingredient in most brands of nail polish remover, and in some household cleaning products. Check the product label to be sure!
