How to remove Sticky Tape residue?

If Sticky Tape has been stuck onto a hard surface for a long period of time, when you come to remove it, there may be some glue residue left behind. However, you can easily remove sticky tape residue from glass, plastic, clothing and more.

First, try to remove as much of the sticky residue with your fingers. Then you can use hot water with a few drops of detergent or canola or olive oil to soften any stubborn adhesive. You can then gently scrape away the residue with a plastic scraper or your fingers.

Alternative methods can be heating the glue residue with a hairdryer. The hot air will help loosen the adhesive and you can then scrape to remove.

What is the shelf life of the adhesive I have bought and where can I store it?

The shelf life of adhesives varies from product to product, but typically ranges between one and two years from the date of manufacture when unopened and stored correctly in dry conditions - usually between +5°C and +25°C. Once opened, the life of the product will be more limited – this is dictated by variables including the type of adhesive, how it is stored, and how much adhesive is left unused. For more information, refer to the product’s Technical Data Sheet.
