here is a couple of things i found,


#1. Reheat the hot-melt glue with a SMT hot air reflow iron. Use an adjustable one, and turn the heat down significantly. When the glue is liquid, blot and wipe away with paper towel, cotton swab, etc. You can get most of the glue up this way.

#2. In the absence of Isopropyl Alcohol I turned to an old favourite - my wife's nail polish remover. It takes just a few minutes to release the grip of hot-glue from most surfaces. Please REMEMBER to work in a WELL VENTILATED area.
