I have a longstanding love/hate relationship with Superglue. Yes, it's amazing all the things it can fix. It's also amazing how much trouble I can get myself into with it. Today's adventure...
The light fixture in the laundry room is dim, and I thought that one of the two circular fluorescent bulbs in it had burned out again. I can just barely reach the latch to take the plastic cover off, and it immediately fell on the floor and cracked the corner. (I was right about the burned out light bulb, though.)
Superglue to the rescue, right? It's great at gluing plastic things. In spite of my best efforts, I managed to get the Superglue on more than the light fixture cover. My success at gluing the cover back together was average at best, but I was WAY successful in Supergluing my finger to the light fixture as well as to the bottle of Superglue itself. I detached both before it became permanent, but the Superglue residue on my left hand makes me look like a burn victim on my forefinger, thumb and that crease between my thumb and finger.
I have tried all sorts of things to get Superglue off, including nail polish remover and Goof-off, with only mediocre results. What I should have done was wear vinyl gloves like I did last time.
I would have ended up with the vinyl glove glued to the light cover.
