Hi guys,
I've made a bit of a mess and got some glue on some of my pieces. What's the safest way to clean it off without harming the vinyl?
Thanks,
Jo

Goo Off works great. Also denatured alcohol at home improvement stores or if you have a can of cigarette lighter fluid. Just remember to test a piece first. I've seen these chemicals take the top layer right off some vinyls.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Easiest, cheapest way is to get contact adhesive is to wait for it to dry a little till it's rubbery and rub it off with your hand it will just roll off into balls, if it is a little late for that then the back of some vinyl with glue on it(very dry) will do the same easily, this a good way to clean up any excess glue around the edges of a job such as a patch, without affecting the edges without any sort of solvent.

3M Adhesive Remover works well too. Again, it is wise to test it on a scrap piece first. It works well to get glue overspray off of vinyl, leather, carpets, as well as paint.

Just about any auto parts store - Advance Auto, Bennetts, etc...  I've had Goo Gone expand the vinyl and ruin it - Thankfully I tested it first.

I personally like denatured alcohol or WD-40 oil.

Yikes, June! I rinsed the goo gone off with plain water after I got all the goo off. I hope it'll be ok. Goo gone does smell like a petroleum product, so I'm not too surprised that wd40 would work. I'm going to try that next time. Thanks!

I use the hand rubbed method also ..,rub in a circular patern it usually comes of fine..cheaper too ! especially when you get it before it sets too dry.

The nice thing about Goo Gone or denatured alcohol is it evaporates incredibly fast, giving less chance to do damage. Like Scotty said, if its just over spray on vinyl it should rub, pick or wipe off without solvent.

Here is the link to 3M's website showing the Genreal Purpose adhesive remover. It works great and very rarely affects the vinyl or even leather (depending on how it's been dyed). Again it is always wise to test on scrap first just to be sure. It can be purchased at most auto parts stores or even hardware stores I believe.

The last problem I had with ue was I braved a stay can and thought it ws vin eaner made s nice mess
speaking of WD40 last week I made a jet boats. Ack bench seat. New wood used white phifertex on the bottom before I put the mesh on I wanted to pait the wood black I goofed up and did t paint iit first and put the skin o. The. I decided it should. E black u der the white mesh. So I masked off the vinyl and sprayed the bottom black  let it dry a few mins the stapled the mesh and some hydem.
After I turned it over I saw  some black over spray got on the top.
So I gra. Ed a can of wd40 and it wiped right off.  After I cleaned the sat with vinyl cleaner.
