Loctite has this on their website for CA:

Cured adhesive may be cut away with caution using a sharp blade, removed with DuroŽ Super Glue Remover, acetone or with boiling water.
Note: Acetone may damage some plastics. Test before use.

Note: I have an almost new bottle of CA, used only a few times, and now the cap is super glued on to the bottle's nozzle, so I searched Loctite's website for how to clean the nozzle prior to putting the cap back on. Loctite recommends cleaning the nozzle with tissue paper prior to placing the cap back on; however, when I tried that all that happened is tissue immediately stuck on to the nozzle, and ripped off and stayed stuck to the nozzle when I tried to remove it. I suppose having dried tissue paper on the nozzle is better than having the cap CA'd to the nozzle. Next tube/bottle of CA, I'll try removing the CA from the nozzle with wet tissue paper.
