How to Remove Sticky Tape Residue from Wood

To remove sticky tape residue from wood, you will need the following items: a putty knife, a hair dryer, a can of WD-40, a clean rag, and fine-grit sandpaper. First, use the putty knife to scrape off as much of the adhesive as possible. Then heat the adhesive with a hair dryer for about five minutes. Spray on some WD-40 (to act as a lubricant) and scrape it off with your putty knife.

If the old glue is still visible after removing the new adhesive, there are two options: try scraping it off or applying more glue remover. Use your cloth to remove any remaining residue and use sandpaper if necessary. Finally, vacuum the area to eliminate any dust created during this process. Make sure not to pour water over the spot where you just removed adhesive because it may seep into the wood and cause damage.
