How to Remove Super Glue from Eye Glasses


Nicholl asked: How do I get super glue off eye glasses? I tried to fix my glasses with super glue, but I got it on the lens. My lenses aren’t glass, they are plastic, so I can’t use nail varnish remover because the acetone will affect the plastic. It’s cheap super glue. Please help.

Super glue hardens to a form of plastic, so removing it from plastic surfaces can be a challenge. There are ways that this sticky substance can be removed that do not require the use of acetone. Of course, if the lenses are glass, it is fine to use acetone. The information is easy to follow and readily available in our guide How to Remove Super Glue from Plastic and Vinyl. For plastic lenses and frames, use the method given for plastics. For glass lenses and metal frames, use the method provided for vinyl.


  1. Reyna says:

    If it’s plastic, soaking in hot water is the best solution. If it’s glass, you can use polish remover, however it will strip any coating that you have on it as well.

  2. Geoff says:

    The best way to remove superglue from acrylic lens-based glasses is to polish the lens with T-cut or some other type of polish.

    If you are trying to remove it from glass, use a non-flash-off gel de-bonder; acetone evaporates too fast and is too thin to control.

    How do you remove super glue off an eyeglass lens?

  4. Shaun says:

    I have just successfully removed superglue from my expensive plastic lens glasses.
    The secret… Toothpaste! It will take you approx three minutes of rubbing the toothpaste on the lens with your fingers, rinse off and towel dry.
    Perfect lens again. Phew!

  5. Glenn says:

    Out of the above four solutions for removing superglue from plastic lenses, I strongly recommend the fourth. Nice job Shaun, not only is toothpaste the least harmful, I guarantee it will remove nicotine stains from your fingers and everyone can pretty much confer that it successfully removes several different different substances from your teeth! The slightly gritty kind works a bit better than the gel. Good luck!

  6. Christine says:

    Toothpaste does not work – I just tried it.

  7. Destiny says:

    Toothpaste didn’t even work

  8. Oblauski says:

    This doesn’t work.

  9. Dean says:

    Sensodyne worked pretty good for me, but I got to it right away.

  10. Sage says:

    My friend just got glue on his lenses and he tried everything, so my genius boyfriend gave it a try and fixed them perfectly with white vinegar and a Magic Eraser.

  11. Tre says:

    Nothing even WORKED!!!!

  12. Kiara says:

    This stuff doesn’t work!!!!

  13. Janet says:

    The toothpaste stuff worked for me. :) Thank you!!!

  14. Gary says:

    I tried some of the above, and it wasn’t working. Then I tried a combo of soaking my polycarbonate eyeglass lens with really bad super glue in white vinegar for a hour, then using a grainy toothpaste and rubbing with my fingers, which did get almost all off. I will repeat to try for the rest.

  15. Tam says:

    The toothpaste trick worked!!!! OMG…I was so skeptical and was ready to throw my item away. My glue was days old and it still worked…Kudos!!!

  16. Candy says:

    Toothpaste appears to be working, but it has taken a few goes.

  17. KS says:

    Toothpaste worked, but have to work at it a bit. Use a toothpaste that is more original type: white and kind of gritty. I used Arm & Hammer that has baking soda in it. My situation, it was a fairly thin coat of superglue, over most of one lens of my dad’s new glasses. It did such a good job, now I’m going to try the toothpaste on the lens cover in the car to see if it will remove the haze.

  18. Christy says:

    Used alcohol and soapy water; it did NOT work. When I used toothpaste, IT WORKED! Thanks to the person who suggested it. It does work you guys. :)

  19. Kathy says:

    I tried the rubbing alcohol, no luck. Tried Crest toothpaste (white gritty kind) and most of it came off. Will try white vinegar tomorrow for the remaining residue. Last time I try to bedazzle my lens frames!

  20. Kiko says:

    Toothpaste worked like a charm… Thx!

  21. Jennifer says:

    Toothpaste worked for me! Took a little bit, but came off with Sensodyne.

  22. Mia says:

    Toothpaste DIDN’T WORK.

  23. Billie Sue says:

    It’s taking a minute, but I think the toothpaste is working.

  24. Hailey says:

    Toothpaste made some of it come off, but I have to keep trying because I want to be able to see. Also, I don’t want to squeeze my eyes in order to be able to see. So white vinegar and Magic Eraser, here I come.

  25. Daniel says:

    Toothpaste worked; you just have to keep working at it.

  26. Gabby says:

    The toothpaste thing accompanied with a Magic Eraser is brilliant. Thank you all who responded to this!!!

  27. Zeyk says:

    Toothpaste, here I come…my lenses need to be cleaned.

  28. Vicki says:

    Actually, acetone and toothpaste worked. Then, I rubbed it off with hot water. Perfect.

  29. K says:

    Toothpaste WORKS!!!! I had a lens that was practically covered in super glue fingerprints and it’s clear!!! My fingers lost their ridges (it took several applications and rinses), but IT WORKS!!! Now on to the frames!

  30. Kayla says:

    Toothpaste plus acetone works good; takes a couple tries, but from what I can see, it seems to be working! Didn’t have a Magic Eraser, so I used a rag that had ridges. They didn’t scratch the lenses; I think it make them better!! Haven’t tried the warm/hot water.

  31. Sherry says:

    Well, I can’t try the warm rag, water, and soaking method because it will probably soften the glue holding my lens in! 😛 So, toothpaste here I come.

  32. Carin says:

    The toothpaste kinda works, but not so well.

  33. Amal says:

    Toothpaste worked perfectly for me…I use Dabur toothpaste…by rubbing with my hand.

  34. Sydnee says:

    I used toothpaste, I have close up the gel kind, and it worked for me. I had to do it more then once, but it worked

  35. Bob says:

    A product called “Goof Off” worked well. No damage to lens.

  36. Mark says:

    Super glue dried on my plastic lenses as I had a problem gluing my lenses to my eye glass frames. The super glue has been on my lenses for a while. Will toothpaste work?

  37. Shy says:

    Toothpaste did not work; just spent the last 25 minutes rubbing the toothpaste in and it did nothing.

  38. Michael says:

    Daniel gets it. Toothpaste and a little patience will work. It did for me.

  39. Angela says:

    Finger nail poilish remover works.

  40. Debora says:

    I had to try a combo of stuff too. I used the toothpaste, Goo Gone and rubbing alcohol, then scratched it off with a razor blade. It worked ok, then I polished them with the toothpaste again to fill in any scratches. They are ok until we can get to the glasses office for a thorough cleaning.

  41. James says:

    I got superglue on my $300 Ray Ban (glass) prescription sunglasses and I was about to try nail polish remover, when I found this site. I decided to give toothpaste a try out of fear that the nail polish would damage the lens coatings and thankfully, to my amazement, it really worked!! It took 3-4 separate light scrubbings with the toothpaste, and the superglue was 100% totally gone. I simply used my finger and scrubbed the area in a circular pattern for about 3-4 minutes. I had to do this 5 times for the superglue to totally come off, but each time I could tell I was making progress. Using toothpaste didn’t damage or scratch my lenses at all and these are prescription sunglasses so they have multiple coatings. I would be careful and make sure you don’t have baking soda in your toothpaste before trying this. The type of toothpaste I used was Colgate Total.

  42. Fredo says:

    Hi, read a lot of the comments and toothpaste does work. One of my hinges broke, so I super glued it and got some on one of my lenses. I rubbed the toothpaste for about 3 minutes and rinsed. Did that about eight times & could see progress along the way. Like somebody else mentioned… takes patience and time. Thank you for the help.

  43. Irfan says:

    Thank you very much for the information of the toothpaste idea. It works; I removed the name from my lenses.

  44. Anirudh says:

    None of the above is working for my lenses. :(

  45. Kay says:

    Hi guys, I was repairing my eyeglasses frame when I accidentally put glue on the lens. I tried the toothpaste, it removed a little, but nail polish totally wiped it all. I used a cotton, then put nail polish on it and rubbed it until it’s gone. Good Luck to all; hope it helps.

  46. James says:

    Can I use nail polish remover on my plastic lenses???

  47. Anya says:

    Toothpaste and a children’s soft toothbrush. I use it; had to go over it several times, but it worked. I used a toddler toothbrush. Had to get it off with a wet washcloth, but it did eventually work, since I can’t afford new glasses.

  48. Melanie says:

    Both acetone nail polish remover and non-acetone nail polish remover could cause immediate damage to a plastic lens. Use rubbing alcohol instead. Repeated use of rubbing alcohol on a plastic lens could dry out the plastic or damage the lens coating, but for a one-time removal of superglue, it should not cause any damage.

  49. Melissa says:

    I tried to bedazzle my daughter’s brand new hot pink frames! I got some glue on them and one rhinestone turned a weird color. I can’t get them off and I tried alcohol. I’m afraid I’ll rub off the hot pink! My husband’s going to be pissed!!! Help.

  50. KPH says:

    Used Arm & Hammer baking soda toothpaste on plastic lenses to remove a small amount of Krazy Glue. Worked!

  51. Keeta says:

    I used toothpaste to remove the super glue from my lenses and it really worked! Thanks. :)

  52. Sam says:

    Toothpaste worked for me.

  53. Barbara says:

    Perfect! Perfect!! Toothpaste works for me!!!! :)

  54. Ariel says:

    Toothpaste totally worked.

  55. Ronald says:

    Got super glue all over my lens on my glasses after they broke. I was fixing to finish breaking them when I read this post…
    Toothpaste got all the super glue off and even some scratches I had!!!!
    I believe in toothpaste for superglue!!!

  56. Nashii says:

    Toothpaste worked. :)

  57. Molan says:

    Toothpaste works!!! I used Aquafresh.

  58. Julie says:

    I noticed that people were getting results from using toothpaste with baking soda, so instead of using toothpaste, I took a small amount of baking soda and added some water, and it scrubbed right off!

  59. Jason says:

    Will using nail polish remover on my plastic lenses cause harm to my eyes? Because I just used it!

  60. John says:

    Toothpaste worked for me.

  61. Abhisheak says:

    OMG!! Toothpaste really worked for me!!! I rubbed Sensodyne on my lens for about 40 seconds and it really worked!!!! 😀
    Thanks to ‘SHAUN’ who suggested toothpaste!

  62. Mei says:

    Put nail polish remover on a cotton ball, and let it soak on the glue for 10 minutes. Then, wipe it off lightly using your fingernails. WORKS GLORIOUSLY. :)

  63. Jacob says:

    Colgate with baking soda. (Any baking soda mixture probably works) for the lenses… Now, for the frames?

  64. Erica says:

    Toothpaste works.

  65. Nox says:

    Toothpaste and perseverance just worked on my plastic lenses. I just got glue on my lenses trying to repair them so I can study for an exam later today and I totally freaked because I can’t see without them. A lot of rubbing later, I’m good. Bless the soul that suggested that idea. For those in South Africa, normal collate did the trick.

  66. Lance says:

    I used toothpaste to remove the super glue from my lenses and it really worked! It took a few tries, but it came off!! Thanks.

  67. Kent says:

    Nail polish remover is great.

  68. Betho says:

    I tried alcohol and it didn’t work. Toothpaste worked great, but it took several coats, washing off in between, and starting again. It also took about 15-20 mins. It saved my glass lens.

  69. Not Too Crass says:

    Tried to fix my glasses and has small super glue showing where the frames and lens met. But a Magic Eraser seems to be working for me. Only 2 minutes and the glue is coming away.

  70. Allie says:

    I tried toothpaste. It did work a bit, but it didn’t remove it completely. I tried nail polish remover and I got better results. Left it flawless. Good luck!

  71. Dawnella says:

    Toothpaste and vinegar worked, but with several applications, and rubbing in circular motions. Also, when I tried acetone, it dried out my frames; I brought the frames back with vegetable oil.

  72. Al says:

    Crest 3D white worked like a charm. I couldn’t believe it! Amazing.

  73. James says:

    Yeah, the toothpaste worked. Let it sit for a few minutes, then pick at it softly with your fingernail, then scrub with a finger. Came right off.

  74. Bridget says:

    Oral B pro expert is brilliant…got off super glue in two minutes of gentle rubbing…thank you to the person who first thought of it…I can now see again!

  75. Cynthia says:

    Toothpaste worked fine for my niece. I had to try three times and it all came off except in one large spot; we will tackle the rest later. Thanks for the help.

  76. Ab says:

    Nice, looking for a home remedy. Well, I tried rubbing alcohol and nothing happened, so I tried white vinegar and rubbed it off with an eraser and that was a success. Thank You!!!

  77. Maria says:

    The best I found was Equate Nail Polish Remover (Acetone) with Gelatin. It absolutely works and does not damage my hard plastic progressive lens at all! I tried tooth paste… it did not work. I tried mineral spirits that did not work either. Forget the vinegar, it’s useless. I finally reached for Walmart’s nail polish remover and it absolutely worked. My glasses were pretty bad as I really messed up; the Krazy Glue got everywhere. It was terrible; I thought I’d have to go and get new glasses immediately. How I got a complete thumb print smack in the center of my lens and not even the broken one, is beyond me. I worked with tweezers, toothpicks, etc., and was stunned to see that the lens which I was not gluing was trying to stick to my thumb; guess that must be where I held it. These are rimless glasses, the part that broke was the ear part where it physically attaches to the lenses. It broke, taking the corner of the plastic lens with it. So you can imagine.

    To end on a positive note, the acetone did a marvelous job. I used a Q-tip, totally drenching the glue until it softened. Some places I even had to scratch it with my fingernail. The lenses were not damaged. The glue came off with constant soaking of acetone by means of dipping a Q-tip in acetone, then applying it to the lens. I washed my glasses with clear soap after and they look as good as new! Of course, the chunk I glued back in is visible, but I can live with it until I get another pair. I was just so stunned at how well the acetone worked, and that it didn’t damage my lens, and I got over being angry at myself for getting the glue everywhere, especially when I tried so hard not to. Next time (hope there won’t be one), I will lightly coat both lenses with a little Vaseline before I bring out the Krazy Glue! It would have saved me a lot of trouble. Try as hard as you like, superglue has a way of always going where you don’t want it to!

  78. David says:

    Toothpaste works pretty good…not perfect, and requires a good bit of rubbing and use of the fingernail. By the way, the superglue I was removing was splashed onto my laptop and screen. I will keep working at it as replacement is costly.

  79. David says:

    The superglue was better cleaned by using a bit of baking soda in a few drops of water, and then scrubbing gently with a cotton ball. It did not scratch my screen and cleaned most of it off, even after being on the screen for a few hours.

  80. Ruth says:

    Thank you very very much; I got the glue off my lenses with toothpaste and with a small wipe of vinegar. They are like new 😉 Thank you again!

  81. May says:

    Toothpaste worked. Thanks.

  82. Ste says:

    I’ve got to go with the toothpaste; worked a treat!

  83. Jule says:

    Toothpaste did a great job with patience.

  84. Kourtney says:

    I had super glue on my lens for months and the only thing that worked was acetone and crest toothpaste. Took a couple of tries, but after the third, it was completely off. Thanks!

  85. Tye says:

    My lenses are plastic. I tried rubbing alcohol, then I tried polish remover & just a very little bit came off. Maybe ’cause the glue sat for so long & it was kind of caked & smeared on my lens. So, I soaked the glasses in vinegar for an hour & a half. Then, used toothpaste with baking soda, rubbed with my fingers, and almost all glue came off, except for a little tiny bit around the edges. I’m going to repeat one more time. Thanks to everybody for their suggestions & little additions on suggestions. Is much appreciated.

  86. TJ says:

    Tooth paste worked like magic… I was super happy and my glasses looked better then before… yay!

  87. Dennis says:

    Just used toothpaste and it did the job amazingly; just a minute of scrubbing and it clean it off no problem.

  88. Daiana says:

    Toothpaste really worked! Nice idea. Thank you; thank you! You just saved my Michael Kors watch! Yay!

  89. Sandi says:

    I have been walking around for three days with a big old blob and a couple of fingerprints of super glue on my eyeglasses. TOOTHPASTE did the trick! I thought my glasses were ruined, but several applications of toothpaste and now I can see! It works!

  90. Dan says:

    Just tried the toothpaste method (Colgate baking soda & peroxide) and after two applications, it removed all the super glue. However, next time, if I need to repair my frame, I will remove my lenses.

  91. John says:

    Used toothpaste and it worked great. Better if you let it dry a little before rubbing. Four applications and rubbing in all directions. Woohoo.

  92. Jenn says:

    I used gel tooth paste and it worked great!!! Thank you whoever suggested it…I was getting tired of walking around with one smudgie lens. :)

  93. Diane says:

    Hi, I used super glue to stick my eyeglasses’ arm back on and toothpaste worked for me. There was a line of glue on my lens, quite bad; I rubbed it a few times and got my nail and gently scraped it.

  94. Ben says:

    I think toothpaste works only for a plastic lens…because I tried to remove mine on a glass lens and it keeps staring at me in the face…no luck…will try the nail polish remover though. Thanks.

  95. Aiden says:

    Toothpaste worked after less than a minute of rubbing with my finger! Definitely worth a try.

  96. Mike says:

    Brake cleaner!!! Worked great!

  97. James says:

    Thanks; toothpaste worked great. Three minutes.

  98. Yvette says:

    The apple cider vinegar worked on the thick glass for removing super glue with the help of a knife edge. Great!

  99. Himanshu says:

    YEA! THE TOOTHPASTE REALLY WORKED for me to remove the spot of Feviquick on my glasses!

  100. Callum says:

    Next branded aftershave worked for me; just tried it.

  101. Susan says:

    Goof Off worked.

  102. Laura says:

    The toothpaste tip worked fairly well. Thanks!!

  103. Sally says:

    Read all of the above and found that toothpaste mixed with acetone worked!

  104. Kristina says:

    Toothpaste didn’t work.

  105. Karley says:

    Nail varnish remover (acetone) and a cotton bud. Let it sit in it for a few seconds, then keep rubbing in circular motions. It takes 5/6 dunks of remover, but it seriously worked a treat- the superglue mark was the size of a fingerprint in the middle of my lens! Now it’s all gone! Phew! :) Just in time for my holiday too!

  106. Haley says:

    I broke my sisters glasses on accident, and I felt bad so I wanted to fix them. I tried superglue to try to fix them, but after a while, they would not stay, so I decided to get the super glue off of them. I used toothpaste and hot water and it worked!

  107. Jean says:

    Toothpaste (Colgate Total) rubbed by my finger flesh worked in the end for me as well!!! Thanks!!!
    However, I had started by rubbing with my thumb nail, and this scratched and partly removed the lens coating (I bite my nails, so they’re not perfectly smooth). Also, there is a network of very tiny cracks in the coating, that doesn’t seem related to my nail agression. It might be connected with the night spent in water, that was pretty hot to start with? I am thinking of removing the coating altogether, but the toothpaste is no good for that! 😉

  108. Jean says:

    After asking my optician, I confirm that
    1) dipping glasses too long in water that is too hot (ie. unsustainable to the bare hand) can damage the anti-reflective coating, cracking it everywhere.
    2) only poly-carbonate lenses do fear acetone. These have refraction index 1.59, and are now seldom used, precisely because of that. For most other lense material, including so-called “organic glass” with index 1.67 or more, acetone is no problem, even if it belongs to the “organic solvent” category.
    The lesson for me: I would have been better off using acetone and a soft tissue in the beginning!

  109. Duan says:

    Working carelessly around my desk, I accidentally got super glue on the face of my Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and almost died. Tried to get it off right away before it dried in a lump, but it smeared and dried pretty quick, leaving a streak across the screen. Distraught, I had to leave to take care of some other things and figured I’d come back to it later. Once I got home (hours later), I searched on best ways to remove it… CAREFULLY! Came across this site, read all of the comments and went with Sage… white vinegar and Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Removed it in less than 5 minutes and looks good as new!! Honestly, I think it’s the safest way. Anything with grit can leave micro abrasions that later fill with dirt and other particles that can cause a cloudy appearance. Good luck!

  110. Yenny says:

    So my glasses got filled with glue. I was like “wow, instead of fixing them I just ruined them.” I tried toothpaste and I felt like that didn’t work for me so I used a blade and it help ed a little, but I ended up leaving a scratch. So I used nail polish remover from Target and it worked. I let it soak first, then I used a tip soaked with nail remover and I used the top of my nail to scrape it, and little by little it was coming off. I made my nail go in a circular motion, but to help it, I scrapped it a little with my nail a little harder. The glue is gone, but now I regret using a blade because I have that scratch. So how can I get rid of scratch?

  111. Melanie says:

    For plastic lenses, you may be able to buff out the scratch with just some mild soap and a soft cloth.
    Buffing the lens with toothpaste should remove the scratch from either glass or plastic lenses. You can also use a paste of baking soda mixed with some water for glass or plastic lenses.
    Another trick to remove scratches from both glass and plastic lenses is car wax. Polishing the lenses with the wax should fill in the scratch.
    For plastic lenses, another option is to use brass polish.

  112. Ashish says:

    I tried toothpaste because most of the comments tasted success with it. It actually WORKS!!! You need a little bit of patience though… If you keep rubbing, after some time, the layer of the glue that touches the lens softens. You can use your fingernails to peel it off; if it doesn’t come off, then keep rubbing and try again.

  113. Josh says:

    To the guy who suggested toothpaste, I owe you a beer. Seriously! It did take me far longer to get my drunkenly fixed, super glue covered lens fixed, but it worked well! It took me so far, two hours and about 15, 10 minute buffs and rinses, but I can now see enough to drive without one eye closed. I still have at least another hour of doing this to get every speck of glue off, but I’m more than happy with the results. You rock! Why this fix isn’t on any page besides comments is over my head. For plastic eyeglasses this should be the first way to get it done. I’m also pretty sure the toothpaste buffed out my scratches along the way.

  114. Roban says:

    Frame damaged…thought of repairing it…glue on lenses…used all the above tips… Rubbing harshly on lenses…accidently broked them. LoL

  115. IsaIah says:

    I used toothpaste and it worked great. When you apply the toothpaste, use your fingernail and gently scrape the lenses; it will probably take a few tries, but you can get it removed no problem. It may take multiple tries, but you can remove it.

  116. Kizzy says:

    Toothpaste didn’t work. Acetone worked perfect.

  117. Taho says:

    Toothpaste works…it could take multiple tries over 10-15 minutes. You have to be persistent…use Q-tips so you do not scratch the lens.

  118. Schubert says:

    Toothpaste worked perfectly.

  119. David says:

    Yes, the Crest toothpaste saved my Oakley prescription sunglass lenses. Thank you!

  120. Sergio says:

    Hot water and a Mr. Clean eraser. That’s it. Scrub like dishes.

  121. Gohar says:

    Toothpaste worked just after 30 or 40 seconds. Thanks! :)

  122. Alex says:

    Cracked my eyeglass frame this morning and in the process of gluing it together, I got glue on one of the plastic lenses! Panicked big time! Read all posts here. Tried the toothpaste and it worked for me. Had Sensodyne and rubbed it on with a Q-tip. With the Q-tip, you can feel the grittiness of the glue more than with a finger. Had to do it several times, but it worked.

  123. Sidharth says:

    How does the tooth paste work???? Can someone tell the exact way to execute!!!

  124. James says:

    Mine was really old super glue on my plastic lenses; been there for ages. Used a white vinegar, aftershave, and toothpaste mix. Most of the glue is gone, but there are small scratches around the area. Only used my fingernail as the abrasive. Just means lenses are crap I guess. In hindsight, mineral turpentine used quickly and fully, washed off quickly too, would’ve been best.

  125. Ryan says:

    I used toothpaste & hot water. Rubbed it in using an ear bud & now my glasses are completely clean. Thanks once again; your a star…

  126. Cyndi says:

    I broke my glasses; tried super glue gel to fix them and got the glue on my lens – read this post, used the toothpaste; it took a couple of tries, but the glue came right off!!! YEAH!!!!! Thank you!

  127. Doug says:

    The toothpaste actually does work.

  128. Kathy says:

    Toothpaste worked. Scrubbed it with a Q-tip.

  129. Melanie says:

    The commenters using toothpaste say that they are just rubbing toothpaste over the glue with either a cloth or a cotton swap. Some kinds of toothpaste may work better than others, but it sounds like persistence is key. Good luck!

  130. Wafi says:

    Toothpaste is working and totally removed hard glue away from my eyewaer plastic lens.

  131. Isaac says:

    I used Colgate with baking soda and peroxide, and rubbed it for around 5 minutes, then I let it sit in hot water; removed most of the glue, but it needs a round 2.

  132. Trout Guy says:

    Toothpaste works fine!

    My brand of tootpaste is Colgate Optic White; I put on a thick coating and rubbed for 20 seconds. Then, washed the lens with dish soap and water.

    Lenses are fairly expensive plastic. The superglue was Duro brand and was smeared over 10% of the lens. The glasses were basically ruined, but now they’re back to normal clear view!

  133. Pie says:

    You have to use a non-abrasive toothpaste.

  134. Dana says:

    Toothpaste worked! Nothing else was working so I decided to try toothpaste and it worked with just one application.

  135. Msmith says:

    Toothpaste, then acetone worked!

  136. Adam says:

    Arm & Hammer toothpaste worked well, which was great…
    Not so great was the Eucryl toothpolish that I thought I’d try on it. The glue shifted, but the lens got scoured. Good job it was an old pair of glasses!

  137. Shelbie says:

    Mixing baby oil and hand sanitizer works. Rub with your fingers, then dry with towel or cloth. It will take a few tries, but it’s amazing.
