Introduction: How to Get Super Glue Off Your Fingers

Hi guys I am going to show you how to easily get dried up super glue off your fingers it is surprisingly easy.

Step 1: What You Need

You will need:

1. Super glue (if you are looking at this you probably already got it on your fingers)

2. Salt

3. Water

Step 2: Apply the Salt

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.     

Step 3: Wash Your Hand

Wash the salt off your hand and the glue should be all gone.

    I’m found that using a nail file or a foot stone to work alit better than salt and it also didn’t sting nearly as bad and the salt

    Okay guys, I was gluing a ceramic plaque using gorilla glue and it ended up all over my fingers, so since it was too late at night, I simply washed my hands and didn't bother to try and take it off. My hands felt rough and yucky in the morning, so I tried your salt magic and..... voilà!! Not only did the glue come off, but I got a great exfoliation in the process. My pretty hands felt super smooth! Yaaayyyy....

    "Really worked" ........rub the salt slowly-firmly in to the glue for about 2 minutes..Thanks to "Turbofish in Cleaning"

    this method did not work. I used a razor to scrape it off. I am only 10

    If you're only 10, maybe you ought not play with razors. Ask your parents for help next time.

    Also, you can usually peel it off just fine with tweezers or teeth, it just takes a while.

    I used soap and warm water, work pretty well, Andy I used my long nails to get the glue off wasn't that painful I feel for you. I am only 12

    So, I craft a lot. And my latest project left several whole fingers
    covered in super glue on the backside(the rough side) because I'm clumsy
    and working fast. Okay, fine.
    I tried this, thinking that maybe the salt would soften or dissolve the super glue.

    ... well it worked. But the salt didn't remove the superglue by dissolving or softening.
    Something
    shortly about me. I have psoriasis which is a genetic illness that
    means your skin falls off before it's fully done regenerating the skin
    underneath it. So in times of "outbreak", my hands or whatever else are
    covered in exposed semi-generated skin in the form of rashes, and my
    skin is sensitive.
    And I just roughly exfoliated my hands with kitchen salt and proceeded to rub it into exposed rashes.
    That was, mildly speaking, not that fun.
    So
    while this works, do not do it if your skin is very irritated or you
    have cuts or rashes......... unless you can take some pain.

    On the plus side, my hands look great.

    Unfortunately this process did not work for me, but it did work for my daughter. I believe the process is right, though. I'm a Type 1 Diabetic, and a lot of things don't work for me because of the Diabetes. My daughter got great results from it, Thank you so much!

    Did work and worked well thanks

    This did not work, in spite of making two attempts!
