What disolves super glue?

So I needed to super glue something together, and when I opened the bottle it squirted drops of that blasted glue all over the bathroom counter. I got most of it up before it dried (I hope my girlfriend doesn't kill me for using one of her hand towels) but now there are a dozen little rings of super glue on the counter.

I've tried soaking it in rubbing alcohol, using a scouring pad and Soft Scrub, and I was going to use a nail file, but that's scratching the counter. I need something to disolve the stuff. Any help is appreciated. I have until 6pm before the girlfriend gets home and sees my mess.

Next to where they sell Super GLue, they typically sell Super Glue Remover. I know HD carries it.

I know if you stick your fingers together you can use Nail Polish remover (Acetone) to get them unstuck.

Thanks for the advice.

I'm going to look around her stuff to see if I can find some acetone. If that doesn't work I'll try the knife.. if I can find one, and if that doesn't work I'll head to The Home Depot for the remover.

Thanks, I feel better. Damn child-proof super glue bottle!

Okay, no acetone in the house. I can't find a blade, either, so it looks like I'm off to the store.

At least the glue hit the counter instead of where it could have landed.

WHOA!!! be carefull with acetone, it could pull the color out of the countertop.

try some on a less visible side area first and see if it does.

Acetone is normally the best. You could try non acetone based paint thinner/slovent too.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Dilute the acetone with water if you try using it. Also, use a flat razor blade, like you would use to scrap a parking sticker off your car's windshield.

What material is the countertop? A razor might still stratch it up depending on the surface...

Hobby stores that deal in R/C cars will have CA remover. Look for a shop in your area.

Bolingbrook used to have "radioactive raceway" not sure if it's still there; and in Louis Joliet mall area you will find Leisure Hours hobbies. Leisure hours should almost certainly have it. Call first to confirm, but I believe they carry everything you could want that is CA related.

If its in the bathroom, I am guessing its a cultered marble countertop...........DO NOT use acetone, use nail polish remover with a NEW razorblade and be very careful. If you scrape the surface finish off by mistake, or etch it with the acetone by leaving the remover on too long, in a few months, you will have little black spots cause the cultured marble is porus and will absorb stains......... remember quick AND careful and make sure you get the polish remover residue completely removed.

Okay, I skipped the acetone and went to Home Depot and bought their strongest glue dissolver and a pack of razor blades.

The disolver sucks. It doesn't work on super glue, but the blades worked... kinda. I was able to get the majority of the glue off the counter, but there is still some thin rings and smears where I wiped it away (dumb I know). You really can't see them unless you are looking for them. I also poured some of the disolver on the glue and am letting it set there for a couple of hours to see if time will make it work better.

I live in an apartment and the counters are this white almost porcelin type stuff. Not marble, but it feels almost like marble. And the sink is built into the counter, not set in and glued into place, the sink and counter are all one piece, molded together.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

If ya got something like goo gone or the like it probably won't work but we can hope for the best! acetone for surfaces that wont fade or melt. I think that is the same for "superglue remover" also.
