If you're like me, you're always looking for ways to make your crafting projects easier and faster. And one of the best ways to do that is by using hot glue.  But what happens when you need to remove hot glue from something? Here's a quick and easy tutorial on how to do just that!

#1 Removing Hot Glue from Your Skin If you accidentally get hot glue on your skin, don't despair. The best thing to do is immediately cool the area with cold water and use a butter knife or a credit card to scrape the glue off.

If the glue is not coming off your hands, try using nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol. Once the glue is removed, wash the area with soap and water.

#2 Removing Hot Glue from Your Clothes If the hot glue gets on your clothes, you can usually remove it with some elbow grease and suitable materials. First, try gently peeling the glue away from the fabric.

If that doesn't work, soak the garment in vinegar or rubbing alcohol for a few minutes. Be sure to test any solvent on an inconspicuous part of the garment first to ensure it doesn't damage the fabric.  Once you've removed the hot glue, wash the garment as usual.

#3 Removing Hot Glue from Glass and Metal Surfaces For stripping off the dried hot glue from glass or metal surfaces, use a plastic scrapper to remove as much glue as you can.

Then for removing the remaining glue, use a solvent like alcohol, spray lubricant, acetone, or nail polish remover. Apply the solvent with a clean rag to rub the glue away.

Remember that glue that’s still fresh and in a liquid state can be challenging to remove from glass, metal, or plastic.  So, you must allow the glue to cool and dry completely before removing it. Give it a couple of minutes to dry and eventually, the glue should peel off just as easily.
