Everything you might need to fix a glass with glue

  • Essential: Bostik Super Glue Liquid.
  • You might also want: a cloth and acetone to remove excess glue if necessary.

Made a little mess?

  • On my skin: Rinse immediately with soap and plenty of water. Do not pull on the glued skin; it is a matter of time before the cyanoacrylate glue separates from the skin, because of humidity/sweat. The effect can be supported with soap and water or the use of oily skin lotion. When the fingers have come away from each other, scrape off the traces of dry glue.
  • On my furniture: as a test, and to avoid unpleasant surprises, rub a small, inconspicuous corner of your furniture with a cloth soaked in acetone. If the test is successful and your furniture remains intact, you can wipe the area with an acetonesoaked cloth or a nail polish remover containing acetone.
