I used Gorilla Glue to fix an item and of course there wasn't enough counter protection. I removed as much as possible but now there's smudges of Gorilla Glue. I am afraid to do more damage! Has anyone else dealt with this issue that could offer a wonderful solution?

  • which gorilla glue, gorilla glue makes cyanoacrylate and polyurethane glues. acetone works on both but works a lot better on the former.

Using a "brand new" razor blade will remove the bulk of it. Scrape very gently against the dried glue at a sharp angle. Then use some #000 or #0000 steel wool to remove the remaining residue. Then wipe the area down well. I wouldn't suggest any harsh chemicals, it might dull the shine. Soap and water with a small amount of rubbing alcohol is about as far as I would go.

  • If the quartz has a gloss surface, won't the 000 steel wool dull the surface ?

  • I use #3 and #4 to clean imperfections on glass windows. It doesn't scratch at all, but it does wear out pretty quick. Feb 24 '19 at 17:01
