Title: Pieces of foam stuck to chair frame
Post by: Bowen on February 24, 2017, 05:31:06 PM
My chair has foam rubber glued to the wood frame and canvas-type material. Staples and foam pulled out ok but left behind large patches and bits of foam. How do I remove the rest of the foam? I scrubbed with a stiff brush and water but could only loosen small particles. Also tried loosening it up with a hot iron and hair dryer, and Sccr aping it off with a scraper and razor blade but none of these methods worked. Any suggestions? Should I just give up and lay down a new foam layer on top of it?

If all you have left are small chunks that just won't let go, then yes. Just glue your new foam right over them. If your new foam is at least 2" thick, the old bits of foam won't show.
