I made the mistake of sticking banners onto our front door for a recent family birthday and cannot remove the tell-tale residue of the sellotape. I've tried all the usual spray products, gentle rubbing with a green scrubbing pad .......... all to no avail.

Please can any of you cleaning gurus advise?

Try salt and lemon juice on a cloth

Nail varnish remover or WD40?

Sticky Stuff Remover.

Sof wipes, bought fro mThe pharmacy.i came across them when I had sticky residue on my CS wound. They are amazing on sticky marks and if safe to use on skin, should be safe on a door.

Sorry, that should be Zoff wipes.

Second sticky stuff remover, it's brilliant

WD40 usually gets sticky stuff off for me.

A soft pencil eraser might work, it's great for the remains of stickers on hard surfaces.

WD40 works a treat

Builders were taking some old film off our windows at work the other day and cleaned off the residue with something. I asked what they were using at it did an amazing job very quickly and easily - Johnson's baby shampoo!

Those flash magic sponges. We had marks all over our front door from previous tenants and itching removed it but I had a bathroom magic sponge in the cupboard. The front door came up a treat! White upvc.
