Different Ways to Remove Adhesive in Varied Types of Surfaces

Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Most of us have encountered situations with glue or adhesive residue on surfaces such as plastic, glass or cloth, that no amount of washing seems to get rid of. As someone who is both clumsy and fond of crafts, it is a predicament I frequently face. I almost never fail to come out of a craft project without a paint spill, or some glue transferred to my clothes. Presuming you aren't a klutz like me, you will still have to deal with the annoying sticker/label residue on different surface, that overtime collect dust, and turn into unsightly brown blotches. The good news is that there a number of ways to tackle this problem, and several products are present from around your home that you can use to do this. Here are some of the most popular methods of how to remove adhesive from plastic, glass, skin etc. Read on stain removal.

How to Remove Adhesive from Different Surfaces

Plastic: Removing adhesive residue that is old or removing adhesive from plastic is easier than you think, and employs the same method. Fill a small bucket with water and add in some detergent. Dip a cloth into it and place it over the surface of the glue. Leave it there for several hours to moisten the glue. If you find the cloth getting dry, then wrap the cloth and object with plastic wrap.

After about 3 or 4 hours, take off the plastic wrap and remove the wet (by now damp) cloth. Now use a clean cloth to take off the adhesive that has softened. You must repeat this process until all the glue has come off. The good part about this method is that it will cause no damage to the plastic surface. However, if you want a method that will go faster, try using rubbing alcohol. Moisten a cotton ball with some of it and dab it on to the glue. The adhesive will soften, which will enable you to wipe it away with a clean cloth. Once you are done, dip a cloth in clean water and wipe the surface clean.

Glass: If you are wondering how to remove adhesive from glass, the above mentioned method would work here too. However, as glass will not get ruined by a number of different products, you can opt for an easier method. One popular method is to saturate the glue in baby oil, and leave it on for a while. In all probability, this will soften the glue, and when that happens, one may scrape it off with a blunt knife, and then wash the surface with soap and water. Other options include dabbing on a bit of lighter fluid or WD-40 onto the adhesive, wait for a few second or minutes and then wipe it off. Repeat the process until the surface is clean.

Cloth: There are a number of methods of how to remove adhesive from clothing. Solutions that work include holding an ice cube against the adhesive for about 20 seconds, and then use another cloth to take the glue off. A household product that works like magic is vinegar, and almost always recommended for any 'how to remove glue' questions. Soak the sticky portion of the cloth with it and after 15 minutes, rinse it out. Another popular home remedy is to place an absorbent paper (such as a paper towel) on either sides of the glue spot. Then place a clean cloth over the paper and iron over it with a hot iron. Repeat till you get all the glue out of the cloth over the adhesive, which should melt and move onto the paper towel.
