Acetone dissolves CA, but it takes a while.

Nail polish remover seems to work a bit better for those skin to glue encounters.  Or, like a broken heart, you can let time work it's magic.  The oils in your skin will shed the superglue in a day or two.

I use this thingie I picked up at wally world for removing dead skin of girls feet. On one side is a pumice stone and the other side is kinda like a rasp. it takes the CA off along with any dead (or alive):) skin under the glue.. It reallly works great

posting this in the "General Discussion" forum would be enough I would think

emergency help for debonding CA should be stickied in all the forums, not just a passing topic in one forum that many don't read...:eek:

RE: CA glue???
My solution:

~Before~ you use CA, use some hand lotion on your hands. It fills the pores, and will block the CA at the surface. It often can be rubbed off like white glue can be. The other solution is MEK, aka styrene solvent glue (brand names like Tenax-R, etc) I get mine much cheaper at a plastics shop, and use it for debonding when some ID-10-T class R/C assemblers use CA instead of locktite! (figure the code out)

A 'pumice stone' (that foot-stone), nail file, or sandpaper can also be used if you don't have MEK, and didn't use the hand lotion before-hand.

Come to think of it, some automotive cleaners like GoJo have pumice, and might do the trick as well.

And yea, tidbits like this should be in the General help section, or stickied just inside each forum under 'Helpful Building Tips'... Mods?
