  1. 1

    Use a razor blade scraper to gently scrape off the dried super glue. Use gentle and steady pressure. Take care not to chip the surface.

  2. 2

    Soak a rag with super glue remover, acetone or amyl acetate, if you cannot scrape off the super glue.

  3. 3

    Allow soaked rag to sit on an inconspicuous part of the surface for 10 to 15 minutes. If it does not stain the surface, allow rag to sit on the dried super glue.

  4. 4

    Remove rag and gently scrape off glue.
