How To Remove Glue From My Phone Screen? 

First, it may seem that removing super glue from a phone screen is daunting. That’s not the case. Let’s explore the steps of removing super glue from the phone screen.

Step 1: Gather the tools

You won’t need too many tools to perform this DIY job. Simple 3 things are enough. Such as

  • Acetone-based nail polish remover
  • A cotton pad
  • A window cleaner (Optional) 
  • A paper napkin

Step 2: Apply Acetone

Soak the cotton pad with acetone and leave it on your mobile screen for 4-5 minutes. During this time, the chemical reactions of acetone will dissolve the superglue. 

Step 3: Rub the cotton pad

Gently rub the soaked cotton pad on the glistening glued area in a circular motion. The super glue broken chunk will come with the cotton pad.
