How to remove super glue from painted wall?

by Diane

I super glued a cork board on the wall for a bulletin board;

It dripped down the wall. Now the board is gone and the glue stayed there.

    I would try to use the super glue solvent (used to unstick your fingers) or likely use a utility knife to scrape it or cut out the damage and then spackle the damaged area. No matter what you do, you will probably need to re-paint. Maybe just painting will hide the area.

    Nail polish remover. The acetone kind.

    Also go to a beasty supply place (open to the public) and buy a emery stick (looks like an orange stick that's dipped in sanding grit). They're usually quite fine and maybe can be carefully used to "sand" the thin drip line down before using the acetone solvent.
