Scrape away the excess melted tape with a blunt scraper or plastic knife or spoon. Ensure you do not scratch the surface under the melted tape.
Pour dry cleaning solvent or nail polish remover on an absorbent cloth. Do not over-soak with the solvent. You will need an amount the same size as the tape residue stain.
Dab the tape residue with the cloth until the solvent is soaked into the stain.
Rub gently until all residue is removed. Add more solvent to the cloth if required.
Things You Will Need
- Blunt scraper
- Dry cleaning solvent or nail polish remover
- Absorbent cloth
- Leave the solvent-covered cloth to sit on the stain if cleaning flat surfaces. The solvent fumes will naturally remove the tape residue.
