    Hmm, not cool. You could try nail polish remover. Or warm soapy water. Never had that problem, so I'm just guessing here. If you can't get it off, just get a new one off ebay for about $20-60 bucks.

    remover

    there is a product made that removes super glue it has a picture of a gorilla on it. they sell it at homedepot and most home improvement stores. works great. you may also try pure acetone.

    I was thinking this too but you will want to wipe it off it qiuckly. If you leave it soak to long it could screw up your plastic.

    I thought the product with the gorilla on it was like a super glue but better?


    Anyway I don't know of anything that will pull it off. Post up a pic of it so we can see how bad it is.

    In a previous life I got a degree in Chemical Engineering - never worked as one, but it did open a few other doors for me.... SuperGlue is cyanoacrilate, which hardens in the absence of air (the Locktite products are variants of this). The cheapest and most common solvent for SuperGlue, CrazyGlue etc. is acetone. Nail polish remover used to be made from acetone until they found out that frequent and extended exposure to it would rot your liver faster than drinking (and without alcohol's beneficial side effects I might add, as long as you don't drive after drinking!!). Anyway, acetone will easily dissolve plastic...as will most anything else that's made to remove nail polish I suspect. I think you're S.O.L. on this one. I haven't done my nails in a long time, so I don't know what they currently put in nail polish remover.... (J/K, don't tell my wife)

    Good post Fastcar..........

    Your way of explaining things did have me laughing at times though.
