My favourite pair of jeans has fallen victim to a stray drip of superglue/instant glue. Now there is a small solid stain, with the glue partly embedded into the fabric. How do I remove this without destroying or decoloring the fabric?
Acetone and methyl ethyl ketone dissolve cyanoacrylate, i.e. "superglue". These are used in nail polish remover, though the commercial polish removers might have water added, which slows dissolving. Acetone is also available in hardware stores, e.g. Lowe's.
N.B. These solvents are highly flammable and somewhat toxic. Use with caution! Also, test the solvent on a hidden piece of material to see if it affects the color of the garment.
