Re: Tape residue removal
Posted by David Warren on Feb 22, 2008
Do test patches with various solvents (acetone usually works really well to remove adhesive goop, but will remove some paints and many varnishes too or at least de-gloss them). Not sure about Brightsides specifically. That orange-peel based goo remover is fairly safe and effective. You can try using more tape to help pull the glue off.
Brightside does take awhile to harden completely - if the gunk doesn't affect your on-going work, leave it for a week or so, then try again... .
