Q. My husband got Super Glue on his glasses. (Don’t ask!) We tried everything to get it off until I read on your Web site about using the insect repellent DEET. I sprayed OFF out of the can on them. One big glob is still soaking in a puddle in a saucer, but most of the Super Glue is gone already.
A. The recommended technique for unsticking fingers or removing Super Glue is acetone, found in some nail polish removers. We were surprised to learn from a reader that OFF insect repellent wipes also work. Thanks for sharing your experience. Many people have insect repellent in the house but don’t always have acetone handy.
