There is a solvent available from many shops that sell the glue. Alternatively, methylene chloride works. The glue will come off with the skin as it is shed, usually within a week or so.
Dont use methylene chloride. I would just wait until the skin is shed, I have had this problem a couple of times.
Otherwise you can try washing it in warm water. The more you soak it the easier it comes off as it dissolves in water.
with your tongue

A useful tip if you have a major disaster with superglue - ie get a lot all over your fingers - is to immerse your hand in water with the fingers spread out. That way it will set very quickly and your fingers will be separate, albeit covered in white, set glue. Then just wait a couple of days and it all comes off. I speak from a real experience with a bottle, not a tube, of the stuff!!
You had me rolling around my office laughing Pudcat. I thought you meant a real mouse and was wondering why you would be supergluing a poor little mouse

lol lol lol lol lol!!!!!!
Get a cup of warm water and steep your fingers for a few hours and it will disolve. If you cant be bothered with that, your body will do what needs to be done itself.
WIll cost you a few quid more BUT the people that make superglue also make superglue-remover - but it works superbly.
