Full Answer

Warm soapy water safely removes Loctite from skin and clothing. Never force fingers stuck together with super glue apart because this can cause injury. Pry the skin apart using a spoon or other blunt object once the glue has softened after soaking.

Acetone dissolves the glue faster but may discolor fabric and cause skin irritation. Acetone works best for removing glue from surfaces.
