    Hey all,

    I recently took my Ultimate Spidey lenses off my suit and want to glue on smaller lenses.

    There is a superglue stain in the shape of the rim from the old bigger Spidey lenses on the mask that i'd like to get rid of. I have heard acetone works. Has anyone tried doing this? The glue was superglue gel, and it's sorta hardened on the fabric.

    Thank you :)

    Acetone is a decent solvent for CA glue, but I've never used it on fabric. Some synthetic fabrics react poorly to solvents. Do you have a scrap of lycra you could test it on first? If so I'd recommend that.

    I doubt you will be able, hot glue or contact cement maybe because it can be dissolved but not superglue.

    I've used Nail polish remover with some success but not used it on lycra
