We've stuck corner cushions onto the edge of the hearth with double-sided tape as per the instructions (not sure what hearth is made out of, some black man-made material), the corner cushions fell off immediately, but the sticky tape ^will not^ come off!!! I've tried scrubbing, soaking, lighter fuel, but it just won't come off. What else can I try?

Nail polish remover?

mayonaise, put little bit on, rub in , leave for five mins then wipe off - saw it on how clean is your house and have tried it - its like magic! grin

Really?! Mayonaise?! I'll give it a go. I hope you're not having me on!!

Did the nail polish remover have acetone in it...might be more effective?

You can buy sticky stuff remover but i think WD40 gets sicky marks off too.

you need to be really gentle with the (acetone based) nail varnish remover: wipe it in circles and it'll come off.
make sure your cotton wool is really really wet.
it might take a while though....

really mayonaise, i used it to remove stickers that my little monster had stuck all over the floor - i was doubtful but it worked!

I've tried the mayo and it's worked a bit, perhaps a second application will help!!! My living room now smells of mayo though. Yuk.

Lakeland or Kleeneze sticky stuff remeover.

There is another product called Zoff, that we used to use to get plaster/adhesive dressing residue off. Don't know if you can still get it though.

lighter fuel works really well and most newsagents sell it.
