    How does one dissolve Gorilla Glue after it has cured?

    And what's the strongest adhesive that you've accidentally got on your skin?

    Try debond. It works on urethane sealants. I don't think any solvents will do it.

    Well, we'll have to see how it works for that woman.

    Gorilla Glue said to try alcohol. I have doubts.

    Bro do you even lift
    Superglue pretty much disassociates from your skin on its own from the oils in your skin as long as you give it time and don't try to yank it off. I suspect the same goes to Gorilla Glue, but I wouldn't freak out. Let your skin exfoliate. Better than yanking it all off.

    Edit: Ps. How are you able to type right now?

    Not me. Imaging mixing up hair spray with Gorilla Glue.

    Google (gorilla glue hair) for the current saga.

    Yeah alcohol would probably help. Maybe a little wine;-)

    Strongest accidental exposure... Xylene... it was not pleasant! I had to use it to soften some cured glue that my interior was “painted” with under the upholstery. 40hrs of xylene, citistrip and scotch brites on my dremel- just in a Cessna 140!

    Late one night I accidentally sat on one of my wipe rags with Xylene on it... talk about lighting a fire under your arse! Glad no one was around! Once it soaked through my jeans and undies I was dancing around the hangar stripping as fast as I could! Left a “burn” type thing on my skin for a few weeks. I was wearing rubber gloves guess I needed rubber underwear! Funny now- wasn’t then!

    Once, 2 decades ago I glued my index and middle fingers together with CA glue. Took over a week and solvent to separate

    In that case, pee on it. That should work.

    So true on both counts. ProSeal is just about impossible to apply neatly, and seems to get everywhere...but an amazing adhesive/sealant.

    The funnier thing about this woman is that she tried to wash her hair to get the glue out.

    I’m sure we all know Gorilla Glue cures with water. It says so on the bottle.

    Which is why we have all those warnings and instructions on products.

    Somewhere, someone is still lathering, rinsing and repeating.

    Forget the name of it but there was a liquid to release superglue ... doctors used it on people who had glued fingers together ... or if someone put superglue on a toilet seat etc.. Not sure if it would work on Gorilla.

    In the 1990's famous late night radio talk show host Art Bell was taking a 6 minute break when the news was on .... he took a minute to superglue a loose part on his microphone , then lit a cigarette .... some glue had remained on his finger and he glued his lips shut when he took a puff ..... had to switch to a rebroadcast of an archived show until he could talk again. Funny as hell to hear him tell the story..

    Ethyl acetate. You can buy it as CA (cyanoacrylate) debonder, though it's cheaper to buy it as nail polish remover. I've had to use it a time or two to unglue myself from an RC plane I was building. Don't know if it works on Gorilla Glue, other than the CA that is sold under the Gorilla Glue brand...but that's different stuff than the original Gorilla Glue.

    You still lose a thin layer of skin, or at least it feels like it.

    It's almost like anything that'll destroy strong glues will destroy you too.

    But maybe the subject won't reproduce. Due to physical appearance. In that case, Darwin's evolution still wins.

    I call ********. First, because she's a "social media influencer," so there's a presumption that everything she says is ********. Second, because if it had been on her head for a month, her hair would have grown 1/4-1/2" and that would be evident. And as others have said, skin oils and natural exfoliation would have disrupted the bond by now. Third, no one in real life is that stupid.

    You could be, to put up with that for a month would be a whole lot of stupid. My understanding was she had done it less than a week ago, but I don't really care enough to go back and look.

    Had that same thought. I can only assume she has some flavor of chemical burn disrupting growth, or the hair fibers formed into a tough form fitting helmet.
    You've never worked in IT, huh?;)

    Once she loses all her hair, what are the odds she'll Gorilla Glue a wig on her head?

    Perhaps ... or the really frustrating part will be when she sues the makers of Gorilla glue ... and wins millions of dollars. And don't tell me that ain't possible!

    They'll turn half the package into warnings like Tide Pods.

    I think the only thing Gorilla Glue said about it was, "good luck with that."

    But she'll likely hire an attorney in league with the devil such as (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloria_Allred) who will then argue that the label did not specifically name "hair" as a place where the product could not be used and this poor defenseless, young, naïve, innocent child could not have known that information unless it was clearly stated on the product. They'll also sue the vendor that sold it, the carrier that delivered it, etc.

    Your mileage may vary ... but I doubt it!
