Bathroom I don't go in much (extra room, I do wash) and have just discovered that a bath mat draped over the edge of the bath has become one with it!Most has come off but big bits are still stuck. HTH do I get them off? Is not ceramic bath. WD40? Oil? Heat? Nail file?
Try blowing it with the hot setting on a hair dryer? It should make it un-mould, I think.
Wouldn't that just spread it around in a big rubbery mess?
Maybe try lighter fuel ?? - it's very good for getting general gluey latex/rubber based gluey gunk off things, labels etc, so in theory it should work.Good luck
Nail varnish remover might work too.
Or UPVC window frame cleaner.
Will try all! Who knew! Why would a bath mat get sooo attached to a bath?
I thought it would make the suckers curl rather than make it a big mess, you could always try lifting it with a butter knife while blowing it with the dryer.
If its rubber/latex it disintegrates with age & basically turns to glue - if that's happened that would make some sense as to why, it's basically glued itself to your bath
WD40 should do it.
Yes it is basically a big gluey mess. Am going to go on a WD40 mission and see what happens in the deserted bathroom of no return.
A retractable razor is very good on hard smooth surfaces. You should be able to find one at a b&q. Window cleaners use them. I use them all the time, and they save me a lot of elbow grease.
Katy I would slice myself to pieces! Am not too coordinated
