User: how to remove super glue from clothes?





Weegy: The glue should be dry before attempting to remove. Wet the paper towel square or Q-tip with acetone-based nail polish remover (make sure the nail polish remover is acetone-based or this will not work). Test the fabric in a small, [ inconspicuous area to make sure the nail polish remover will not damage or discolor the material. Dab the glue spot with the towel or Q-tip soaked with the nail polish remover, letting the towel or Q-tip sit on the spot for a minute or two. Briskly rub the spot with the toothbrush until some glue flakes off. Depending upon the amount of glue on the fabric, steps 4 and 5 may have to be repeated as super glue will come off in layers. If the glue has soaked through to the opposite side of the fabric, you may have to repeat steps 4 and 5 for both sides of the material. After repeating the dab and scrub procedure several times, if the spot remains, gently rub the spot with the very fine sand paper or emery board. Be careful not to rub too vigorously or you may damage or tear the fabric. Pour a couple of drops laundry detergent directly onto the area where the glue residue was and rub the detergent into the fabric using your thumb and forefinger. Wash the fabric or garment in your washing machine as per the directions on the label. When the wash cycle has finished, check the fabric carefully for any remaining stain. If the stain remains, DO NOT place it in the dryer, as the heat from the dryer will set the stain and it will be virtually impossible to remove. If the stain remains, you may want to try dabbing a little bit of lighter fluid on the stain and rubbing with the toothbrush again, as described in steps 4 and 5 above, then wash as usual. REMEMBER to always check a small inconspicuous area of the garment with the lighter fluid to make sure it will not cause damage or discoloration to the material. ALSO, exercise caution when using lighter fluid as it is highly flammable and can be poisonous. Exercise lighter fluid safety to prevent any mishaps. Do not use around open flame, or on any material that is prone to static electricity ]
