Slight mishap happened.

Does anyone have a trick to remove super glue from clothing? I was thinking acetone but I'm worried that it might also remove the color.

Has anyone tried and succeeded?

Hobby stores carry a 'De-Locker' spray for about $6-$10.
I don't know what's in it if acetone or some other wonder chemical.

And it works on suits without damaging the color?

I would say nail polish remover acetone or and this is a big or, or the ghetto hair salon stores in america. Simply put, certain groups of people like to put fake hair and they glue it to their scalp. How do you think they wear fake hair for 6 months to a year without refreshing it? Strong glue. Yes strong glue. How do you think they take off that strong glue? With strong Bonding glue remover. Now I did a search on a search engine site and it says they sell this item at stores like walgreens...It comes in shampoo form and lotion form. Cost around $2.99.

I would try Ice or other no chemical stuff first.

I would put the garment in the freezer.
After frozen, maybe the glue will flake off.
Dry ice will be even colder, but it can be hard to find.
