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.
Another option is to try plain white toothpaste. Many commenters have written in to say that wetting the glue with warm water, then gently rubbing toothpaste over the glue with a cloth worked well to remove the glue. It may take some elbow grease, but dozens of people have had success with this method.
