gorilla glue is made by aliens

I read the Gorilla glue is made be alleins, and I have to say I agree with him. except for I am a women with gorilla glue all over both my hands. and before reading his statement. I already tryed anything and everything I could think of to take it off. well guess what nothing and I do mean nothing will take it off. except for one thing. and you have to wait untill the next day and be very careful. a small grit sand paper. hay it took most of it off and exfoliated my hands. like I said becareful dont blister your hands. then put some really good cream on them. I do a lot of tinkering and building. but I also play the piano at church. and I didnt want to go in sunday with black dirty looking hands. no one would want to shake my hand. it is friday now so I hop the rest will ware off before sunday morning. there isnt much left so just mabe. well you all have a great day.

Your right, once it cures nothing will remove it but time. It is however one powerful glue, few if any are better. I have had limited success removing it with the solvent Xylol, but I have serious concerns using that stuff .

This worked for me with POR 15 (Yep I use that junk occasionally just not on cars) so it should work for Gorilla glue. First clean your hands thoroughly to remove anything else that you may have on them then rub the areas that has glue with lots of baby oil. This takes a few minutes to work but given enough time it will be absorbed into the skin and tends to release anything sticking to it, Removing POR is about like removing a tattoo so if it will remove that should remove anything!

Use baby oil, hand lotion, the "orange" type of hand cleaner, rub it into your hands, pull on a pair of disp[osable gloves for 15-20 minutes, take the gloves off and wipe off the slimy crap left behind. I had por15 ALL over my hands yesterday, accidently figured this one out by deciding to wear gloves whenever I use the stuff.

1966 ford f100

I inherited my dad's 1966 ford F100. He bought it when I was 11 and drove it for 38 years. untill dec.2007 when he passed away. it was hit on the passenger side. and upset him so bad his blood pressure spiked and he had a stroke. but I want to fix it up real bad. the breakes have gone down on it. I crank it once a week. and with the help of a few bricks I move it back and forth under my carport. finding time and money is tough. but I'll take some pictures and send them to show the progress. I cant wait to start driving it again. soon as cold wether lets up I plan on fixing the breaks. I figure its the master cylender. or busted lines. form sitting up so long. any hint will help. I cant break the bolts loose as well I once could. thanks. pam.

I had not thought of using the gloves, I will remember that trick! Nothing else I tried works nearly as good as the baby oil and I bet combined with those gloves it will work even better.

Gorilla Glue.......

Hi,i dont understand HOW or Why the gorilla glue dried on your hands. after using the glue,wipe your hands with acetone. it will take off the UN-EXPANDED glue.

Fingernail polish remover while it does contain acetone, it is a watered down acetone, usually with oil to keep your skin from drying out too much.

actually the smart trick is to coat your hands with baby oil/gojo/whatever before you even open the Gorilla glue...

do I ever remember to do it?
hell no

acetone finger nail polish remover and alot of patience does work...

it is a catalytic reaction glue so solvents can't do much

I have found that is you crank up the hot water in the shower and stay in there long enough to get prunny you can scrape the stuff off with a knife.

Thats why I keep that Rambo knife in the shower.

When doing ANYTHING, you need the proper PPE or personal protective equipment. This means safety glasses, hoods, clothes, goggles, gloves, FR clothing Etc.

Using toxic chemicals to clean off other chemicals AFTER exposure is a health risk. The proper course is to ear latex gloves FIRST.

Kind of reminds me of my Ex. "I burned myself on this hot pan!" Were you wearing oven mits? "No!" Well then DUH!!!

Lacquer thinner might do it. It will remove JB weld from anything after soaking for a bit. I know from experience. It will remove POR 15 from your hands too but takes some scrubbing. If you can soak your hands in it for a bit (do it outside or you'll be high as a kite) it would probably work but be a lil boring until youre done. Try the baby oil thing first tho, you cant put lacquer thinner in a glove and wear it around. It will melt it.
