    1. The hair glue has a solvent, right? You need to get the hair glue off something else. Try that solvent in a place that won’t show. If the carpet is OK, then it’s probably safe to use it where your sister got it on the carpet. There are other things you can use, like acetone (or a safer version from TAP Plastics), paint thinner, lacquer thinner or another solvent. If you’re not comfortable with this, try the carpet “shaving” already suggested. … Good luck!

    2. you might have to use a razor blade and sort of ‘shave’ it off the top surface of the carpet.I had to do that with nail polish and it was slow going but it worked.
