I'd soak it in acetone. Wonderful stuff, but quite flammable.

How do i clean superglue from a lens?

The only thing you could possibly try is jewellers rouge or glass polishing paste, If the lens is glass you could try acetone ( nail polish remover) but it will dissolve any plastic so I'd put your chances of success at close to zero with that if there is plastic nearby. The lens is ruined, move on.

nail polish remover painted on with a nail brush will most likely do the job. .super glue doesn't like acetone so if that doesn't work paint on acetone very carefully.

My mum decide my sewing machine need oil but instead of oil she accidentally has put superglue instead.. Honest mistake.. Is there any chance I can fix this or do I bin it.. Please will try anything...

try nail polish remover
  • Acetone, found in many nail polish removers, is the most effective way to dissolve super glue because it works on a chemical level to break down the bonds. Simply wipe the glue with a paper towel or cotton swab, removing it layer by layer until it is completely gone. Do not use acetone on plastics, as it will damage it or even eat through it in some cases.

How do I remove super glue from a leather seat?

G'day mate well Acetone (nail polish remover) disolves superglue (sino acrylate original designed as a medical product for 1st aid) maybe go to the cosmetics counter at the department store and see if there is a 'softer' alternative for removing the likes of nail polish, hope this helps
