Default Glue spots

This is a problem that has bitten me once again! No, not on wood, on my
clothes. As I was assembling a joint, it slipped and wiped glue across the
front of a clean pair of pants. Grrrrr! Anyone know how to get glue out of
fabric?

Assuming use of white or yellow carpenter's glue; IMMEDIATELY strip, apply
one of the commercially available pre-wash stain removers (Spray n' Wash,
etc), rub the cleaner into the glue area, let it set for a few minutes,
reapply and wash with normal detergent.

Did this last week with a shirt and it came out clean.

A blowtorch will do the trick. No glue!

A blowtorch would indeed do the trick. But if the white or yellow glue
is still wet, soaking and rubbing well in plenty of water should too,
and leave your clothes intact. Assuming the glue has dried, I think
you have a new pair of shop/lawnmowing pants. If it's dried, I would
try soaking in water, but I doubt it would all come out. What were you
doing wearing good clothes in the shop anyway?

If you catch it before it hardens, just strip and toss in the wash NOW

If it has hardened, often a soak in vinegar will soften it and maybe
allow it to be washed out

Once was enough for me to learn to use old clothes when
gluing. I DGAS about the glue anymore.

You beat me to it.

I also wear a shop apron most of the time or clothes that I won't mind
having glue gobs on.

My work clothes can almost stand by themselves because of the glue and
paint.

Regular carpenters glue should wash out. Best to soak the garment in
soapy warm water overnight, apply vinegar to the spot, then wash.

Leave it in.

Now you won't look so-out-of-place in the contractor line-up at the
wholesaler when you turn up there at 6am with everybody else.
