    HELP!!! Super glue on iPhone.

    I accidentally dropped a glob of super glue on my iPhone, thank god it just barely missed the home screen button. Anyone know what I can do to get it off? I wiped it off with my finger as soon as it hit the phone, but it's got that little residue left.

    Bonus points if you also know how to get it off fingers... :/

    Try some "Goo Gone" from your local hardware store. Be very careful to not get it in any openings in the phone. Hope that helps. Apply it with a cloth and don't rub too hard. Good luck.

    Acetone is recommended for removing super glue

    I wonder what that would do to the touch sensitivity of the screen?

    I don't know if this helps. But whatever you apply to the phone to remove the glue, don't allow it to sit for a long time, in case in does any damage. Quickly apply and remove it.

    Acetone on a q-tip and off it comes.. fingers use a cotton ball and " soak " for a bit.

    The touch sensor is underneath the glass, and glass resists almost all chemicals, so no worries there. The only problem is the multiple layers of optical and oleophobic coating on top of the glass. Acetone can definitely eat through that and damage it.

    Should have waited for the drop to dry and then used a razor blade to remove it. I would not use acetone on my iphone. I'd first try rubbing alcohol. If acetone is used, it evaporates quickly, so I'd wait a bit after dipping a Q tip before wiping with it.

    Yea, I realized that later.

    And to all, including the OP: have acetone or nail polish remover at hand whenever using superglue.
