Being the insensitive male woodworking type, I needed to do a glue up the other day and grabbed what I thought was a cheap, glass ramikin from the cupboard. Several days later, I was informed that it was a gift and in no uncertain terms was I to scavenge for woodworking supplies in “her” kitchen. Is there anyway I can get a fully cured dollop of Titebond II off the glass to restore peace and tranquility to the house, so I don’t have to live in the shop? I was thinking about carefully using muriatic acid, since glass is impervious.

if it is glass I would expect it to just pop or scrape off. Titebond just pops off of melamine…

The Titebond website suggests heating the joint with a heat gun or blow dryer to soften the glue up.

The writer of this post suggest a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers or roses to soften “her” up.

When I was going thru my divorce with EX #2, I did sleep in that shop/garage a couple of nights. Not all that comfortable.

Yes indeed. You did blunder. I don’t know how you are going to get the glue off the ramikin without breaking, cracking, discoloring or leaving a trace of glue on the glass, good luck to say the least, but in the future you probably have only two options. First you can make the kitchen and all the contents yours or you can save empty glass or plastic containers that could be recycled and use them in your shop. I’m certainly glad I am not in your shoes.

You could find out where the gift was purchased and replace the gift. Add flowers. Hopefully the ramekin was not purchased from an expensive store. Hopefully it was NOT a place like LE CREUSET.

Thanks for all of the “constructive advice” :P Anyhoo, I actually got the glue off by bathing it in boiling water. It eventually gave up the ghost w/o scratching, breaking, etc. I displayed my “save” proudly, and ostentatiously put it back in the cupboard. I’m off to go buy some disposable shop ware.
