Today, for the first time in weeks, I have enough of an opportunity to repair my decaying sandals. It’s one of my favorites… I bought it in Bangkok in February and’ve been wearing it nearly all the time since then….
Why do I repair it?
The sandal’s center contains little pebbles, but many of them have fallen off recently, making it appear as if they were about to be thrown away. But I don’t want to do that; I’m someone who prefers fixing something rather than throwing it away and getting a new one, no matter how much money I have on hand, especially if I truly adore the item.
I bought the new stones for 10k, or around USD $1 ( I know, right? They were cheap). But I couldn’t find the exact same stones as the original ones, so Idecided to buy something similar instead. And this evening, I also got superglue..
This is what it looks like after I fixed it, Yay! Looks like new, haha..
When I was finished repairing the sandals, I discovered that I had a lot of super glue residue on my fingers and it was really unpleasant…. It’s SUPER DRY, SUPER ROUGH, and also SUPER HARD to remove because it’s a SUPER GLUE. I went online searching for ways to get rid of it and one of them was this.
So, what you need is just an Acetone (Nail Polish Remover) and a Cotton Pad
Pour a fair amount of acetone to the cotton pad, and then just rub your fingers or the part of your skin that has a superglue on it.. Rub it for 15 to 30 seconds..
After that, with your nail, just scratch the glue and it will easily come off.. If it doesn’t come off, rub your skin again with the acetone and scratch it again until your skin is free from the glue..
If your skin is already clean, don’t forget to moisturize it with lotion as the glue and the acetone is quite harsh for your skin..
Hopefully this is helpful! xoxo
