Having trouble removing the adhesive velcro tape from interior walls. Old owners had little storage bins taped up everywhere. I have tried toothpaste, and windex so far. I am afraid to try a hair dryerI think it might damage the fiberglass. My husband says wait for a warmer day (it is snowing). Suggestions welcome.

Yeah!!!! I am finally done. I opted to delay this project till it was warmer. It is not fun working in the trailer when it is raining and snowing. I tried many things. It was a slow process. Then I finally tried my hair drier. That warmed the adhesive making it easier to lift off. Sometimes I still had adhesive on the fiberglass walls. I tried rubbing it with my fingers, a sponge and etc with alcohol, scrubbing bubbles and etc . Then I had a brain storm. Why not use that very same nasty velcro tape to pull up the adhesive. I would just dab the adhesive on the adhesive and the adhesive would lift off.
