How to remove super glue from glasses
Acetone is the most effective way of removing super glue from any surface, including glasses. However, know what type of glasses you’re working with before you begin. Acetone can damage plastic lenses, frames and some specialized lens coatings. Once you’ve established your lenses are acetone resistant, here’s how it’s done.
- Saturate a Q-Tip or cotton ball in acetone-based nail polish remover.
- Hold the saturated cotton on the glue spot to soften the adhesive. The texture of the glue will change from hard to a softer, clay-like consistency.
- Wipe away the glue with the cotton ball or microfiber cloth as the adhesion gives.
- Clean glasses with a lint-free cloth once the glue has successfully been removed.
