Dip your fingers that have super glue on them in water then put a small pile of salt on the super glue add some more water on the salt and rub the salt firmly in to the glue for about 1 minute it should look like a white paste.

Any chemists in the house?

How does this work? Is it the Na or the Cl? And what do they bind to?
