How Do You Remove Crazy Glue?


Quick Answer

Krazy Glue can be removed from most surfaces by applying acetone, a powerful solvent, to the bonded area. Acetone-based nail polish removers and acetone solvents from paint stores both work well. Apply the acetone to the Krazy Glue, and let it sit for a few minutes to dissolve the glue. Then, wipe away both the glue and the liquid acetone with a dry towel.

Acetone may cause discoloration of some surfaces. In order to ensure your surface does not become discolored by your Krazy Glue removal efforts, test the acetone on a small, inconspicuous part of the surface to which the Krazy Glue is bonded. If the surface does not discolor within a few minutes, you can safely proceed with the glue removal process.

To remove Krazy Glue from fabric, apply some acetone to both sides of the material. Use a toothbrush to massage the acetone into the fabric, and then apply more acetone to rinse the glue away. Keep in mind that acetone may discolor the fabric.

Nitromethane is another chemical solvent that can be used to remove Krazy Glue. It's a good choice for plastic surfaces, which may become cloudy after being treated with acetone. Look for debonding agents that contain the active ingredient nitromethane at your local craft store. Use it in the same manner as acetone to remove Krazy Glue or Super Glue from a hard surface.
