SSPDaily has prepared a list of practical tips that will help you easily and effectively deal with glue and tape marks. These life hacks will help you get rid of sticky, persistent residues from any surface.

Rubbing alcohol

Simply moisten a cloth or paper towel with rubbing alcohol and gently wipe the affected area. The alcohol helps break down the adhesive, making it easier to remove. This method works well on a variety of surfaces, including glass, plastic, and metal. Before applying it to the entire surface, be sure to test a small, inconspicuous area to make sure there are no negative effects.

Baking soda paste

Mix baking soda with a little water to form a thick paste. Apply it to the affected area and leave it on for a few minutes. Then gently rub the surface with a soft cloth or sponge. The abrasive nature of baking soda helps to loosen the adhesive, making it easier to remove. Afterwards, rinse the surface thoroughly with water to remove any residue.

Using olive oil

Apply a small amount of olive oil or other vegetable oil to a cloth or cotton pad and rub the adhesive residue. The oil helps break down the adhesive, making it easier to remove. Once the residue has swelled, use a clean cloth or sponge to remove the oil and adhesive residue. This method works well on a variety of surfaces, but as always, test a small area first to ensure compatibility.
