I can see clearly now: How to get super glue off glass

Artificial Content Title -- to be hidden

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.

Using super glue on glass

Just as important as using the right product to remove super glue from glass is using the right glue in the first place! An adhesive specially formulated for use on glass allows you to create strong, long-lasting bonds, and you’re less likely to make a mess with excess glue.
