Super Glue and its off-brand cousins are the next best thing to duct tape when it comes to good-enough repairs, but heaven help you if it spills. Luckily, there's a guide to getting SuperGlue out or off of nearly anything.

Lots of folks know to reach for the nail polish remover to get glued things unstuck, but the acetone in the remover can damage and discolour surfaces. According to the makers of Super Glue, you can actually use hot water to get yourself out of your gluey mess.
For instance, if you need to unstick your lips (and, please, we don't want to know why), here's what you do:
If lips are accidentally stuck together, apply a generous amount of warm water and encourage maximum wetting and pressure from saliva from inside the mouth. Peel or roll (do not pull) lips apart. It is almost impossible to swallow the adhesive as a liquid. The adhesive solidifies upon contact with saliva (moisture) and could adhere to the inside of the mouth. Saliva will lift the adhesive in 1-2 days, avoid swallowing the adhesive after detachment.
