Anyone have any idea how to get superglue off fingers, I consider myself an intelligent person, but I somehow superglued my fingers together, I was opening a small vial for my grandaughter to glue her nails on, and when I opened it, it got on my fingers, its very difficult to type with your fingers superglued.
 
Sorry, I know its off chronic pain topic, but its causing me a pain in the  well I will just say fingers.
 
Any help would be much appreciated, I swear, I am not stupid, I must have had a blond moment, (I am a blond, even if its with the help of a bottle).
 
Thanks,
Kathy

Yikes Kathy, I have done this more times than I want to admit, lol. I have always used nail polish remover and just keep rubbing over with a cotton ball. This does not get all of it off, but enough to where I could peel the rest of it off.

Good luck.

Thank you so much Straydog and SE, if not for both of you I would be pecking and pecking away at the keyboard.  In my defense, let me say as you know I take public transportation, I left the house at 7:30 am and got back at about 8:30 pm. it was a day filled with buses and subways, and I guess I was just overdone by the time I got back home.  But still I feel very silly and foolish, sadly I know this will not be the last time I do something dumb like that.
 
So again thanks, to both of you, I was not looking forward to a life with my typing fingers glued together, and thanks for not saying how dumb it was in the first place.  Thats just one reason I will never leave this forum.
 
Take care all, I know I will, I am going to bed and try to sleep the whole incident away.

Kathy....

Oh, that's happen to a few people here (my family) on a few occasions, lol. And, yes - acetone (nail polish remover) can really help.

I'm sorry you've had such a long day.... I'm pretty wiped out too.

And you are NOT dumb. And I'm a bottle blond, too, lol.....

Kathy,, They sell Superglue Remover for this very reason. And so you don't feel so bad, I have done the same thing before and is why I keep a bottle of the remover close by when I use super glue. I always manage to get it somewhere other than where it is supposed to go.

Also for everyone info: Nail polish remover with Acetone in it will work but now they are making Nail polish remover without Acetone so be sure and check the label if you go to buy some.

In addition, if you do use the Acetone it can discolor or damage some things and Quality Super Glue Remover isn't supposed to cause damage. I'd still read the label before I bought some.
Things may seem bad right now but it could be a lot worse!!!
Don't forget to count you blessings.
I'm thankful to be here.

Hi everyone, and again thanks for the help.  To Darnme2000, thank you as my grandaughter does her nails at least 2 times a week, I will get some superglue remover to keep on hand.
 
I keep telling her to stop biting her nails, then they would grow, but I can talk to a wall and get the same response, nothing.
 
Again, thanks, one thing, I dont feel so dumb now that I see it has happened to others.

Itsmee, you are so right about the glue gun, when I was young, I used to help my dad in his workshop, which by the way, was were I learned everybit of language that cannot be repeated here.  My dad could not work without cussing.
 
Thank you, and I am going to keep nail polish remover around always,
 
Take care,
Kathy

Hi
Just thought I'd mention while were on the topic of sticky stuff. WD40 is also very handy to have around. It removes most glue and even tree sap out of your hair. Don't ask how I know that...LOL. Oh and by the way I have glued my to index fingers together with super glue as well. Good thing for the nail polish remover but what a pain to get the bottle open when your 2 index fingers are glued together.Take care

I got my eye one time with the superglue...it was so stupid because my mother was just telling me to be careful because a lady had come into her store with a really bad eye from the superglue she got in it....and I squeezed my container (it was some store brand) and it came squirting out of the side of the tube...onto my eye.. shocked

I did, however, manage to have the reflex where you shut your eyelids quickly.  It was a reflex, I'm sure because I didn't have time to think.  I ended up with my eyelashes stuck together, but no superglue inside of my eye.  Then I ended up with some funky looking eyelashes for a while turn , but I was no worse for the wear.
 
BTW, I always use acetone (plain old nail polish remover or from the hardware store/paint section) to take off any that gets on my hands.   It happens pretty often, I'm afraid because that stuff tends to run so bad.

I would like to thank everyone who gave me information on how to remove superglue, along with my fingers getting unstuck, I didnt feel so dumb anymore, as I noticed I was not alone in having an accident with superglue.
 
Thanks so much to all,
Kathy

Kathy when I have Superglue around its a guarantee something is going to get stuck that is not suppose to get stuck, lol. I have bought some Gorilla glue but am scared to use it, will have to work up the courage, lol.

Take care.

Gorilla glue is the best thing going! Just be careful and realize that it swells up a lot and you must account for this swelling or you will have a mess on your hands. It's really great stuff though!
