Need Help!

  1. My wife just superglued her finger to a decorative rock (carved parrot that broke) and she is walking around with a parrot on her finger.
    How do you remove superglue?
    She is not finding my comments about "flipping the bird humorous".

    Have her soak her hand in warm soapy water. Or you can use acetone or nail polish remover. I would try the soaking first...

    Oopps I see B_Matt has beat me to it...:chuckle

    Nail polish remover, or any other product containing acetone, will do the trick.

    Maybe someday I'll share my superglue tradgedies with y'all.

    in american pie 2, the main character superglued his hand to his "little brain" and he used paint thinner to get it off.

    Nail polish remover. The nail places all use acetone to remove fake nails. You have to soak for about 15 min. Good Luck.

    LOL Rusty.......maybe she'll see the humor in it after the parrot is off?

    Ok,
    The parrot is off and she finally HAD to laugh.
    We were all teasing her and talking like pirates around the house.
    I almost used a thong for an eyepatch (changed my mind).
    Thanks for the help.
    ARRGH!
