How To Use De-Glue Goo
1. Shake well if settling occurs.
2. Apply a thick layer of De-Glue Goo to old glue. Wipe De-Glue Goo off of finished surfaces.
3. Allow to work until old glue is softened— 10 to 45 minutes. Do not let De-Glue Goo dry out. Keep it wet. A thick layer of dried glue may take several applications of De-Glue Goo. Another way to remove a thick layer of glue is to apply De-Glue Goo and cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Leave for several hours.
4. Wipe excess De-Glue Goo off any finished surface. If De-Glue Goo sits long enough on a finished surface, it could cause blushing. However, this blush will disappear when it dries.

Tips from a Veteran De-Glue Goo User
" My favorite tool for getting all the Goo and glue off the wood is a small pocketknife used a scraper. I take care not to remove the wood. But situations vary and I use other instruments too. Round mortises can be tricky and sometimes I will insert a drill bit and twist by hand to bring out the sludge. The side of a slender chisel will work nicely as well, or a round brush. For flat surfaces a Scotchbrite pad, toothbrush, credit card or scraper can be handy, always being careful not to remove the wood. De-Glue Goo gets used every day in my shop and I have never found a better way to remove unwanted glue. Keep a bottle nearby, use it often and will save you time and money."
