How to remove super glue from a countertop with acetone
If soap and water don’t do the trick, acetone is the next step. A simple bottle of acetone-based nail polish remover and a cotton ball will suffice. Here’s how to do it…
- Dip a Q-tip or cotton ball into the acetone
- Rub in small circular motions on the glue until it loosens. Try to keep it on the glue, and not on the countertop.
- Scrape away super glue with a knife
Acetone is safe for any kitchen countertops whether they are made of laminate, marble, corian, quartz, or granite. Test the acetone on an unseen part of the surface first, to make sure it won’t discolor the area. Some surfaces, like finished granite, will require you to repair the finish after removing the glue.
