I was painting my window frames on my house last year, and forgot to remove the blue painters tape. I have tried razors, soaking it, everything I can think of, and it will not budge. It seems to have baked on. Please, I'd appreciate any tips!
i don't know if this would work or not. but, the 1st thing that popped into my head was wallpaper remover. good luck!
How about using a hairdryer to melt whatever glue is left? I've never tried it, but it might work!
Thanks. I'll try both. I saw a commercial on TV this weekend for the painters tape that said it will come off even after months of being on.....ha ha ha. I laughed.
The longer you leave it on, like past 12 hours, it just ripps and shreds and is very hard to get off. I have done this many times with the sun baking it on or a furnace drying it. If you do a small area at a time, (2-3 feet) you can soak it with a wet sponge and wait about two minutes and repeat soak it. It will usually come loose. Sometimes I soak it a third time. If you try to soak too much of an area, it will just dry again. Just keep it very wet for at least 3 to 4 minutes.
If you have any spots with 2 layers, peel of the first layer and soak the second layer before trying to remove it. Don't attempt to use a razor or scraper except on glass.
