    I am not the world's most patient person and I saw where lots of members were using the SuperGlue Gel so I thought I would give it a try [​IMG] I had to remove my wedding ring or it would have been glued to my finger...not that I usually take it off to begin with [​IMG] Now I tried Nail Polish Remover-non acetone, then I smeared Triple Antibiotic Ointment all over my hands...no vaseline in the house [​IMG] I have about removed my fingerprints now! How on earth do you gals use this stuff and not get it all over yourself? Oh, I was trying to decorate my blown out chicken eggs [​IMG]

    this is extremely hilarious to me only because ive been known to super glue my fingers together a number of times by accident. Usually i use scalding hot wanter or just pick it off / wiggle my finger around. Super glue comes of when it feels like comming off over here lol, good luck!

    Well, it seems to be coming off in bits and pieces thanks to the greasy ointment. What a mess! Maybe I should have asked How to use the super glue? [​IMG]

    I'm glad you're finding the humor in super glue.

    Now I can take a deep breath & [​IMG] publicly

    I've done that before! [​IMG] It sucks, but once you finally wiggle free, it's not so bad anymore. I just went to the sink, turned on some hot water, and broke out the dish soap.

    I used dish soap, Fels Napha, nail polish remover, etc. Honestly, I have now found the best thing is to "grease" up those fingers and hands and let it work. I was then able to spend the entire night peeling and picking till it was all gone. Mind you my right thumb still hurts..it was stuck to the tube of super glue and I mean STUCK. I am ready to redo it all today! I think the best thing to do would be to grease up your hands before applying the glue but then I probably won't be able to hang on to anything! [​IMG]

    the nail polish remover with acetone will take it right off. I use super glue that is a gel, not so runny all over the place.

    I'm glad you got it all off. I would suggest trying olive oil or vegetable oil next time, I think this could work. I would try soaking your hands in it.
