Removing sticky tape

8 replies

Moved a little while ago and I think the person here before must have had rugs and taped them to the floor in the hall.
So now I have horrible sticky tape all over the floor and today I'm trying to remove it all.
Any tips for getting it off?

depending on the floor - nail polish remover or eucalyptus oil

WD40 is great for removing sticky residue.

Sticky Stuff remover from Lakeland Check the label carefully, though, to make sure it is safe for your needs.

oil of any sort. I use olive oil on food related sticky tape.
Yes, you can use it on your fridge too.
