    I have heard that nail polish remover helps to take it off skin but I don't know what that would do to fabric. It might be a spot you could appliqué over?

    Depending on the fabric nail polish will remove it but if the fabric is acetate polish remover will melt the fabric. If the fabric is a natural fiber, cotton, wool, linen you should be okay.

    Thanks, I'll try the remover. It's a cotton knit shirt and my absolute favorite. Thanks!

    If that doesn't work, try hair spray.

    Put it in the freezer and see if it freezes and then it can be rubbed off gently.

    There is a product called "De-Bonder" It costs about the same as the "super glue" itself and can be found at Hobby stores that sell model cars, planes and rockets. Just make sure that you don't get it close to any glued items you want to keep glued because it does work very well.

    Oh and by the way. Don't RUB anything off of fabric because it will damage the fibers and it will look fuzzy there forever. Tamp it up and down with a stiff brush.

    Had no idea but really wanted to see the suggestions. I will definitely be writing these down "just in case".

    My first reaction was "You don't" but these suggestions look really logical. I thought Super Glue was clear, though. Does it show up badly enough to chance ruining the shirt getting it out? If all else fails, you can cut the shirt up, back each piece with fusible interfacing to stabilize it (like with a TShirt quilt) and use it in your next scrap quilt.
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    Pure acetone but I would try it on an inconspicuous area and use a Q-Tip and dab just a little at a time. Also a well ventilated area. Outside if possible. you have to be careful with nail polish remover. It has other chemicals also. When I say I mean an up and down motion, like stippling, lightly.

    I do not know.....but it sounds like a good reason to go shopping!!! You may have to purchase several, just to "test" which will be your new "favorite".

    I've finally found the shirt, after it's been tumbling around in the laundry for a week, and I've rubbed it down with nail polish remover. I'll find out tonight how it worked! Thanks for all the suggestions. The shirt was a plain, black one, but oh so comfy, so the super glue left a shiny spot on the surface.
