This wonderful invention of super glue that we use to repair almost everything such as broken handle of the cup and we look for the super glue. The kids know where their toys break they scream the brand name of super glue used at home such as Loctite, Gorilla or Scotch Super. This magical compound is more than a glue, it is a life saver at home or office and should not be missed.
To all of us it has happened that by carelessness or simply by lack of attention and meticulousness, we have remained with a little of glue stick to the skin on fingers, on some surface or even in our favorite outfit. Urban myths point out that you will never be able to get rid of the glued super glue, but nothing is further from the reality in this post about which we will talk how to remove the super glue from the most unusual places possible, from the skin or clothing.
Super Glue in Glasses
The super glue is not indicated to be used on the glass, only some specialized versions but it is one of this will be removed very easily, this clear if you do it immediately drops the drop. Soak the area with water but you can immerse it in water because it is very large, place a cloth rather moistened on it and leave it to act for a few minutes, then delicately try to peel off with a spatula or razor to shave the residue, if they continue hard to soak until it softens a little more.
In Nose or Ear
In the ears or nose on the outside with a little moisturizer and gently rubbing the area will make it take off slowly unhurt. There are those who use a little warm water, but I think the moisturizing cream and even baby oil have better results.
If it is internally, I recommend that you consult with a doctor as soon as possible and it is always necessary in these cases to take advice of a specialist. If it is in the ear, the natural wax of it will make it appear the same as the natural moisture of the nose will do the same process, each case is particular and will depend very much on the amount that has fallen in the area.

Super glue has become a household item today, but do know super glue is used in the battlefield as well to deal with wounds of soldiers. The Army spire could be used by any soldier and aroused such confidence in possibilities that in 1966 the US Army sent Vietnam a team of trained health personnel in the use of super glue spray. The trained health personnel used the spray on the battlefield to stop bleeding during the evacuation of wounded.
Super glue was the last resort to prevent the wounded soldiers from losing their lives, so the US Army medical personnel did not use it extensively, but when it did, it was a success in most cases.
Chantelle Champagne, of the University of Alberta, analyzed available medical literature on the use of it. The super glue spray successfully stopped bleeding in all but four out of 30 well documented cases produced in the Vietnam War. In addition to these cases, there were many other examples of the use of super on the battlefield, which lacked the necessary documentation to carry out a medical study.
In the civilian context, however, the US Food and Drug Administration was skeptical of the safety of this chemical. In 1964, Eastman filed with the agency an application for approval of this new drug, not knowing that it would take 30 years of bureaucratic battle before being able to make its product available to the US surgeons.
The scientists at the US Food and Drug Administration applied huge amounts of super glue to rats, causing them tumors, and some of them malignant. Almost anything in huge quantities could trigger a tumor which Coover told the Chicago Tribune. The inventor considered the agency’s tests not to represent the type of super glue used by his team, a small localized amount of super glue to stick paste tissues that would disappear from the body in about 14 days.
Since the US bureaucracy took too much care, Japan, Austria, Germany and Canada, among others, undertook their own clinical trials in the 1960s and 1970s. Japan approved super glue as tissue adhesives in 1963 followed by Germany in 1968. The US agency did not give in to the overwhelming results of research and international experience until 1998 when it finally classified super glue as a topical medical device.
It continues to be part of civil and military kits worldwide as a tissue adhesive. However, the hemostatic properties of super glue were so useful in Vietnam, they have lately been overshadowed by fast acting solutions using biologically neutral chitosan or chitin or kaolin as active ingredients. But the Super Glue deserves all the credit that is due. Cooper’s discovery and its multipurpose nature demonstrate how the military can generate innovation in the private sector. Without Kodak’s involvement in the US war economy, the world would have run out of many models of airplanes and many unglued vases, not to mention that many more soldiers would have died in Vietnam.
