Additional Tips for Removing Old Duct Tape Residue
You should always begin with the gentlest approach; don’t use strong chemicals unless you have to. Try to moisturize the dried tape to make it easier to scrape and wipe off.
Heating the surface area up is helpful as well. However, keep the hair dryer on low or moderate setting. Hold it over the residue for several seconds to melt it.
Rubbing alcohol can be useful for getting rid of gunk – especially if you’re in a hurry. It works rather quickly, and even leaves the surface nice and shiny once it has dried. It doesn’t leave oily residue behind like some commercial cleaning products.
