    Ruined them, it looks like I’ve wet myself even now it’s dried out.

    Acetone (nail varnish remover/) softens superglue. If your spill isn't too large you can probably soften and remove the stain by soaking in Acetone working the fabric with fingers and an old toothbrush to break up the glue and help get the Acetone to all of it and spread it out. Then rub with detergent/water solution when the stain is still dispersed in the acetone to keep things from re-setting and wash. Worked for me with a similar spill on trousers.

    Sit still and watch the river, it's all a part of fishing, oh and never trust a man in sandals.
