How To Remove Super Glue From Granite

Even though granite is a highly durable stone that is able to withstand a lot of wear and tear, there are some products (such as super glue) that pose difficulties when it comes to cleaning up spills. For one, you want to ensure that you don’t use a cleaning product that only embeds the glue further into the stone and, for two, you don’t want to risk scratching or chipping your attractive granite tiles or counter top in any way.

Step 1: Take some acetone and apply a very small amount to an inconspicuous area of the granite (such as under the bench or in a hidden corner). Leave the solution to sit on the stone for around 24 hours to see if it affects it in any way (don’t worry about the finish, however, as you can always reapply this).

Step 2: If your granite has not been affected, you can put on a pair of rubber gloves and apply some acetone to a cotton swab. Use the swab to rub the acetone around the outer edges of the super glue stain. Try and remove as much of the stain as possible with the cotton swab.

Step 3: Take a razor blade and use it to gently scrape away any of the remaining super glue. If you are a bit nervous about using a razor, a small putty knife will also work. Regardless of which blade you use, however, it is important that you don’t use too much pressure or you risk scratching the granite.

Step 4: Once all the glue has been removed, give the granite a thorough clean using a wet, soapy rag. Then, use an appropriate cleaner and reapply the finish (if necessary).

As you can see, removing super glue stains from your granite tiles and counter tops can be a very simple process, providing that you know what you are doing and have the correct materials. As a little tip, if you cannot find straight acetone, a nail polish remover that contains acetone will do the trick as well.
