How to clear the traces left by the sealing tape
We often encounter such troubles in life: after the sealing tape sticking to the surface of the tabletop, glass or cup is torn off, it will leave sticky marks that are difficult to remove, not to mention affecting the appearance. A layer of dust, also looks very unhygienic. Here is a small coup that I personally tried to solve this problem.
Medical alcohol soaked offset printing Drop some medical alcohol on the surface of the mark, soak for a while, and then wipe it off with a soft cloth or paper towel. Of course, items with traces of sealing tape must not be corroded by alcohol. Similarly, if you have expired perfume or astringent lotion, you can also use it to replace alcohol, because there is a certain amount of alcohol in it (reference: What are the uses of expired or unsuitable skin care cosmetics), and These two can be applied to any item, after all, the alcohol content in it will not be too much. Scope of application: the surface of objects that are not easy to be corroded.
Hair dryer heating offset printing Turn on the hair dryer to the maximum heat, blow on the sealing tape mark for a while, let it soften slowly, and then wipe it off with a harder eraser or a soft rag. Scope of application: It is suitable for items with relatively small traces of sealing tape and offset printing for a long time, but the items must have sufficient heat resistance.
Computer Cleaner to Erase Offset The cleaners that are usually used to wipe camera lenses and computer screens can also be used to remove traces of packing tape. Scope of application: It is very effective for sealing tape printing on the surface of smooth items.
Eraser to erase offset printing I often used this method when I was a child in school. Wipe with an eraser, and the rubber crumbs can just stick the adhesive traces. Scope of application: for small areas and new traces, for large areas Sealing tape marks are futile.
Nail remover to remove offset printing This is the most effective method I have ever used and I have been using it all the time. in spite of“history”For offset printing with a long history and a large area, drop some nail polish remover used by girls to clean nail polish, soak for a while, and then wipe with a paper towel to ensure that the surface of the item is as clean as new. But there is a problem, because the nail polish remover is very corrosive, it cannot be used on the surface of items that are afraid of corrosion, such as lacquered furniture, laptop casings, etc. However, the paint surface of the notebook case was damaged a lot, and some nail polish remover water flowed into the inner case of the computer, causing the inner case to be corroded). Therefore, although the nail polish remover removes the traces of the sealing tape, it is a hundred and one-handed, but we must pay attention to protecting the items with traces from corrosion. Scope of application: Offset printing has existed for a long time, has a large area, is difficult to clean, and is not easy to corrode the surface of the article.
time-saving“glue remover” aka“adhesive remover”, It is sold in some auto parts stores, spray the trace part, and it will be wiped off quickly. Scope of application: large-area offset printing that is difficult to remove, but if you don’t often encounter the trouble of sealing tape marks, there is no need to buy a bottle, just use the author’s little trick.
