How Do You Remove Loctite?

To remove Loctite super glue, soak the affected area in warm soapy water or rub it with acetone to dissolve the hardened compound. Avoid using acetone in an enclosed space or on fabric, and always check for colorfastness before applying it.

Warm soapy water safely removes Loctite from skin and clothing. Never force fingers stuck together with super glue apart because this can cause injury. Pry the skin apart using a spoon or other blunt object once the glue has softened after soaking.

Acetone dissolves the glue faster but may discolor fabric and cause skin irritation. Acetone works best for removing glue from surfaces.
