    Before anyone says google, I tried that already.

    I have a white mica furniture set, when I was younger I used to tape pictures on my furniture with clear hockey tape. The reside has been there for years and everything I read on google only half helps. I never get it off completely, anyone have any ideas?

    Rubbing alchohol or those little alchohol pads should work.

    Goo gone?

    Rubbing alcohol?

    Nail polish remover?

    Kerosene or Gasoline?


    Most acids and solvents shouldn't be an issue if it's mica or quartz. If it's marble or limestone, then yeah, be careful what you use.

    Have you got a steady hand? If so scrape it off with a razor blade/scalpel.

    Blood of the innocent, I use it for all my house-hold needs.

    Can't get that pesky bird out of the gutter? Thats A-okay!

    Just simply go to your local comic-shop, and give a collector twenty whole bucks.

    This will leave the Virgin open for an attack.

    What you then do is take a ordinary *Brand new* razor-blade and simply slice the virgin's wrist. This will give you about a ten to five day ammount of innocent blood.

    That should get that goop out.

    Also, you may want to use said blood for other things.

    Other things:

    Summoning Belgurt the horrid
    Dishes
    blood transfusions
    aftermarket blood buyers.
    "Other things"


    =D Hope that helps!!!




    Srzly though? Heat up some water to a boiling point. Put in a rag on a stick. Lather, rinse repeat. Goop be gone.

    Yikes i'd be afraid the nail polish remover would ruin the finish on the furniture. I like to use Lighter fluid to remove residue.

    I buy something at the dollar general store called Orange Glo. This comes in a windex styled clear spray bottle. it's main ingredient is oranges. this is really good at removing tape residue,shinning car tires & getting brake grease off of the car rims. it can also be used as furniture polish. it cost around $4 & it comes in a big bottle.

    Goo Gone is great for sticker and tape residue.

    I also suggest alcohol. Keep drinking until you don't care what the furniture looks like. Repeat as necessary.
