I would never have believed it and would have been too afraid to try it had it not been recommended by a member, but finger nail polish remover is the only thing that has successfully removed dried hot glue from my bows! I figured I had nothing to loose if it didn't work, I have literally thrown away beautiful bows because I couldn't get the glue off! 5 kids and 3 dogs can be a bit distracting, and I have the occasional slip with the gun. God bless you ladies for your wonderful advice! I was just in tears over what has to be the most beautiful bow I have made thus far because the resin slipped and made a mess! I wanted to throw up. Thanks again!
