    Removing double-sided tape

    Well there were these crappy, plastic guards on the bottom of the Jeep door sills.
    Pulled those off, but now there is all the double-sided tape left.

    First attempt to remove it has not gone well…
    Plastic flat blade doesn’t really work, and using my finger nails doesn’t either… already broke 2 nails.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    GooGone from drug store…let it soak in for 30-45 min-works perfectly….Keep it wet every 10 min with an eyedropper

    After you get it all off, re-wash and wax the area.

    The 3m adhesive remover wheel works great on the tough stuff along with their adhesive remover.

    Re: Removing double-sided tape

    When you say, "plastic flat blade", what exactly are you using?

    I've found a plastic razor blade is really good for removing the majority of the foamy, sticky material, and I then resort to the products mentioned above by others for "phase 2" of the removal.

    3M General Purpose Adhesive Remover.

    Done. Call it a day.

    Sit back with a nice bourbon, and enjoy the dogs and hubby with the free time that would have been spent.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Yes, it was a plastic razor blade... this time it didn't work worth a crap.

    You'll find it in just about any hardware store, Monica. And, it's clear coat safe.
