    Buy some nail polish remover, preferably in one of those 'nail polish remover' hand held pens (that way you can apply it easily). Or pour some into one of those plastic bottles used for moistening envelopes (you can find those in most "99 cent" stores). Nail polish remover can be acetone or non-acetone - either will work. Or just pour some on a cotton swab or a napkin.

Tips

  • A 'nail polish pen' (sold in most drug stores) makes the application and rubbing part easy! You won't have to get any of it on your fingers.

Warnings

  • Don't become a glue-sniffer! Yes, acetone smells nice, but it's bad for you if you sniff it too long.
