Oftentimes when using E-6000 adhesive glue during the course of a craft project, glue will inadvertently come into contact with table, fabric or skin. This can cause a problem as the glue can cause an immediate bond with whatever it comes into contact with. This adhesive bond can be broken through the use of the solvent like acetone, toluene, or naphtha. Applying a small amount of solvent to the glue can cause it to break up, freeing whatever it has come into contact with.


Step 1

Apply a small amount of solvent to a cotton swab or toothbrush.

Step 2

Apply the solvent-dipped cotton swab or toothbrush to the affected area. This will cause the adhesive bond between the glue and object to soften.

Step 3

Scrape the softened glue with a knife or sharp-edged object to work it off the affected area.

Step 4

Reapply the solvent and continue to scrape away the glue until none remains.
