How to remove super glue residue

But no matter how careful you are, spills and overflow sometimes just happen. Here’s how to remove super glue residue from metal, wood, plastic, or fabric.
For metal: Try acetone [jump mark to “How to remove super glue stains from your work area”], commonly found in nail polish remover. If that does not work, give your metal project a 30 minutes soak in a 2:1 mix of water and white vinegar. Now try to remove the residue with a rough cloth or fine sandpaper.
For wood: Try the nail polish remover trick again. Alternately, use coconut oil or olive oil. Once the glued area has detached, scrub the entire affected area with fine sandpaper.
For plastic: Lay a damp cloth over the glued area and secure it tightly. Alternately, soak the glue in vegetable oil or diluted vinegar. Let it sit for a few hours to allow the glue to moisten. Blot the glue with acetone or rubbing alcohol and let this substance break down the glue. Clear away with a damp cloth.
For fabric: Use acetone, but test sparingly first to avoid potential damage. Once the adhesive bond has begun to break, apply a pretreatment stain remover deep into the glue. Let it sit, then wash the fabric item at a warm temperature.
