Step 1

Moisten a rag with acetone or nail polish remover. Dab the solution onto the super glue stain to soften the glue.

Step 2

Pry off the glue with a putty knife. Do this gently so you do not damage the laminate countertop. Add more acetone or nail polish remover and continue prying with the putty knife.

Step 3

Rub over the super glue spot with a nylon scrubbing pad and hot water. Alternate applying the acetone or nail polish remover, prying with the putty knife and scrubbing with hot water until the glue is gone.

Step 4

Wipe down the laminate countertop with a rag and soapy water to remove any residue.
