Tape goo removal

Postby Fool » Fri Mar 02, 2007 5:04 pm

Anyone have any good products/tecniques for removing tape residue from a helmet? Spit? Urine? Wishing it away? Other ideas?

Start with warm water and mild to light soap. It may take a while but thats probably the safest idea I know of. If not, maybe coke. If that doesn't work try rubbing a fresh slice of orange over it a few times. If all else fails you could check out a paint shop or art supply store and see what is a good degreaser thats not going to damage plastic. www.coastairbrush.com may have something along those lines. good luck!

1 goat testicle, the eye of a bat, 4 grams of basil, a smelly sneaker. Boil for 3 hrs.....


Goo gone works good, and shouldn't harm plastic... but dont use goof off, that will melt it.

Second that. Great stuff and doesn't harm anything, made from oranges (lots-o-citric acid).
I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
