Water and soap

If superglue has spilled on your hands or stuck your fingers together, do not scratch it off, let alone try to separate the glued fingers, as this can cause wounds. Instead, wash your hands with warm water and soap as soon as possible.

Washing powder will also help in this case. To do this, it must be diluted in warm water until foamy, then hold your hands in the resulting solution for a while.


Ordinary salt will also help to wash off the glue that has dried on your hands. Dilute it a little with lemon juice or water to make a slurry, then apply the mixture to the glue and rub gently. After a few minutes, the superglue should come off easily.
