    Hello,

    To the point i was working with cement glue is like crazy glue and when it harden its almost impossible to break. I know a remedy but before doing anything that my harm the look of the button i wanna ask.

    Its looks like finger print its almost invisible and is just that i put the finger with glue on the button and i wanna remove it? Any home made solution or things that will dissolve without harm?

    You may end up causing more damage with solvents and removers, than what you originally caused


    post pictures + links to the glue you used, we can't help you otherwise.

    My experience with crazy glue types of adhesives is that they melt plastic, so I expect you have more than just glue on the surface of the button. Leave it alone.

    you need to use 100% acetonce to remove crazy glue

    but I don't recommend it, that stuff will also melt plastic


    You screwed up, leave it alone
