Would Super Glue create such a sticky situation?
In ''American Pie 2,'' paint thinner saves the day. (Good to know.)
In ”American Pie 2,” Jason Biggs mistakes Super Glue for lubricant and adheres his hand to himself. Would paint thinner help in such a sticky situation, as suggested in the film?
Hand it to ”AP2.” Thinner would probably work, says Douglas A. Rund, ER chief at Ohio State University Medical Center. But there’s a better way: nail-polish remover. (Near the eyes, he suggests an oil-based ointment like Neosporin.) The makers of Super Glue-like sealant Loctite say soap and water would do. Dr. Rund, who’s never treated a patient with Biggs’ condition, adds that technique is crucial: ”Go slow and be gentle.”
