sticky muck.

Hi folks. I need help. The previous owner of our trillium used a one sided sticky foam built up around the door,as a short term fix. I now have the proper seal for the door. The question: how do I get the stuck on foam off? Is there a product that will cut the sticky part on the door? Thanks.

Try OOPS it takes off all sorts of icky goo. It is available at Walmart etc in the paint thinner section.

Scrape what you can using a plastic scraper, then use Brakleen on a rag to clean it followed by isopropyl alcohol.

I've had good luck with Goo Gone, a citrus based adhesive remover. Be patient and give it time to work. I use a plastic scraper that won't gouge the surface and sometimes a hair dryer to soften things up. Raz

The best I have found to remove sticky residue is wd-40. Then you have to wash off the WD-40.
