Put on rubber or vinyl gloves so you don’t get adhesive or adhesive remover on your hands. Spray WD-40 around the edges and corners of the Duck tape.
Wait 5 minutes for the WD-40 to soften the adhesive. Push the blade of your plastic scraper (plastic is less likely to damage surfaces than a metal scraper) against one corner of the tape to lift it from the surface.
Grasp the corner and slowly peel the Duck tape from the surface. Spray additional WD-40 on the tape as you go if it is difficult to pull. If the tape rips, discard the ripped piece and use the scraper to lift another corner.
Spray WD-40 on any remaining residue from the Duck tape. Wipe it with a clean, damp cloth. Use dish soap and water to clean off traces of WD-40 from the surface.
