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.

<p>Hi everybody!</p><p>I figured out another way to get super glue off my fingers! All you need is water and a bowl of salt. Just rub salt all over your fingers and then your hands, then wash off the salt. Repeat the process until your fingers feel smooth or until you run out of salt in the bowl. If this doesn't work, grab a knife and slice off your fingers and fetch a gauze. In just a few days, your fingers will grow back... and there will be no more super glue on your hands!</p><p>Thanks for reading this message from me!</p>
<p>This did not work, in spite of making two attempts!</p>
It worked for me, i soaked my hands in hot water for a while then i dried them off, and then i dipped the glue spots in water and rubbed the salt on for a minute and lastly washed my hands ???
<p>chew your fingers off</p>
<p>Searched through all ways, some would work, and some wouldn't, so I found</p><p>the one to work in anyway, when you get your hands all over with super glue. You can also check out, there' a step by step guidance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgI6PBx8n8k</p>
<p>I dont think you need to add the glue as a step. kind of threw me off I thought you had to use it somehow. going to try it now</p>
<p>Duh!</p>
<p>#did not work</p>
<p>cut your fingers off. Apply band-aide</p>
Hey Guys, try soaking your fingers or if it's something that is a place you cant soak try this you can also try get a damp cloth soaking in acetone fingernail polish it has to be acetone wet the cloth or towel paper down Squeeze it over the glue and soak continue doing this until it feels that I'm a licensed cosmetologist I know this will work it may take a couple applications be patient depending on how much you have on it will vary on how long will take you to get this off.<br>Have a good day!
Polish remover got my fingers unstuck but the salt and water took all the glue off in less than 3 minutes
Thank you! It worked like a charm!
<p>Thankyou, there was a fault with the bottle and when I tipped it up it all spurted out over my hands - I soaked them straight away in hot water and detergent but this did not do much, then tried your salt - used cooking salt and it has now brought most of it off and yes, my hands feel softer. I just poured alot of salt into my hands and added a bit of water and rubbed and rubbed - great tip - thankyou!</p>
<p>lol. I just put my fingers in salt water and rubbed them together for a couple of minutes</p>
<p>#did not work</p>
Cluts, I'm sorry it may did not work as well for you it doesn't give you the right to be disrespectfull DestinD1 who's trying to give advice I know it does matter how much glue you do have on rather it works good for ANYONE! Try soaking it in acetone fingernail polish Im a licenses Cosmetologist and I know for a fact it does work but once again you got to work with it... it's not just going to miraculously come off It's a process ok.. I hope this helps and I hope you have a wonderful day!
<p>#did not work</p>
<p>Cluts have you tried to use larger grain salt? Regular fine grain salt will not work as effectively. If your fingers got all glued up like mine, you will need the salt that is larger grain. Next you need to dampen your fingers over a bowl pre-filled with warm water. Next take the salt and pre-scrub your damp fingers. You need to work in the large salt grains to break up the glue. Rinse and repeat.</p>
<p>Worked perfectly! And left my hands baby soft too! Used fine all-natural sea salt. Thank you!</p>
<p>Thanks I thought my fingers would be stuck together forever!</p>
<p>It works very well but the fine granulated salt works best. I only had sea salt which only removed the rough edges of the glue. After getting some regular salt I was able to remove the rest of the glue.</p>
It didn't really work but it did get some of it off of my wife's hands at least.
Ty worked!! Also bestie had a cut she didn't know about I laughed
I just tried this &amp; it worked great!! Use the mosr corse salt &amp; put alot on the glued fingers &amp; keep rubbing, rinse &amp; repeat as needed!! Ty
<p>i must done it wrong and or im just an idiot for getting super glue thegreen little tube all over my hands lol thx though</p>
<p>lol :D same here</p>
<p>used a lot of salt and hot water but after ten minutes of scrubbing my fingers with salt, it worked like a charm and i had a lot of glue on my hands!</p>
<p>Shiiiiit! Hhhmmmm... Welll it didn't quite work out for me! Either cuz the only salt my pops has is Morton(R) Lite Salt &quot;mixture&quot; 50%<strong> LESS SODIUM </strong>THAN TABLE SALT... lol, or, cuz i guess it just dosen't work out for everyone! Tried it out and the tips of my fingers still look like The THING from Marvel Comics.</p>
<p>can u do the same thing to get it off of otter box screens?</p>
<p>worked a tiny bit but not much so I'm guessing KRAZY glue is different from super glue.</p>
<p>Thank you! It was very easy to do and worked great!!!!!</p>
<p>it worked thank you I almost had 2 fingers stuck together this got the glue off my fingers, it didn't make the paste doesn't matter it worked !!! Thanks</p>
<p>It worked!!thanks</p>
<p>I tried it but it didn't make white paste</p>
<p>I tried nail polish remover, acetone. Didn't work hardly at all, tried the salt and took maybe 15 minutes to get it all off and it covered my thumb and hand from the tube spurting it all over. THANK YOU!!!! </p>
<p>wow thank's E1 for t6he Info tried the salt and water my father got it But he was in a hurry But took almost all of it off </p><p>Thank You for telling me about Nail polish Remover and Butter works well other's said Thank So much added this to my list of thing's to try</p>

<p>thankyou soo much im only twelve and im always getting superglue on my fingers</p>
Any chemists in the house? <br> <br>How does this work? Is it the Na or the Cl? And what do they bind to?
<p>I guess for the abrasive action of the grains of salt.</p>
<p>hey this is really helpful gr8 idea</p>
<p>Butter works well</p>
<p>thanks it kinda worked </p>

Acetone (nail polish remover) will do the same trick.
This can be very useful, Alex. Thanks for sharing.
ALEX'S HAND!
