Yeah super glue sticks to everything except what it's supposed to.

There's that Epoxy stuff that you mix two different tubes together into one to make it work. Great for larger sticky projects, and you dont stick your fingers togther!

I've done that! I've also tried filing it off. Neither method works very well, but they are entertaining!

acetone will do it if applied quickly. Do'nt waste good money buying it in the form of nailvarnish remover. It is available on your local supermarket shelves in litre plastic bottles for a euro or two.

Try using a nail file or fine sand paper to remove it. It's best to stop before the blood loss becomes critical ;-)

Can anyone explain why Superglue is guaranteed to stick everything except what it is meant to stick?  Tube cap to eyeball,  cat's tail to bathplug,  just a couple of examples!

Hot water and washing up liquid is the least offensive time consuming. Alternatively munching it between your front teeth will provide you with hours of fun all week!!

Acetone is supposed to work. It is often contained in nail varnish remover, so if all the shops are closed, try calling some women to see if they have any on hand!
