  1. Apply nail polish remover to the glue

    Choose a nail polish remover that lists acetone as an ingredient. Dab small areas with a clean cotton swab soaked in the remover. To remove larger patches of glue, use cotton balls or pads.

  2. Let the nail polish remover sit on the glue

    Wait five minutes for the acetone in the remover to soften the glue.

  3. Scrub the surface with a soft brush

    Work the loosened glue bits up from the surface with a soft brush or a plastic scrubbing pad. Sandpaper is an option on surfaces that are not easily damaged.

  4. Repeat as necessary

    Reapply nail polish remover as necessary, and keep working the glue loose with the brush or scrubbing pad. A metal scraper is useful to carefully scrape up the last bits of glue.

  5. Wash away the nail polish remover

    Wet a soft cloth in warm, soapy water. Wipe up the nail polish remover with the cloth. Rinse with fresh water, and polish the surface dry.
