An automobile is a major investment, but sometimes things get sticky. Follow these step-by-step guides to keep your car paint looking pristine when removing duct tape residue or other car adhesives.
How to Remove Duct Tape From Your Car
1. Clean the area around the tape with soapy water to remove any dirt or grime. Wipe dry.
2. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat entire surface of duct tape until it is hot to the touch.
3. Use a plastic scrapper to gently peel off tape fabric. If there’s a lot of resistance when peeling off the tape, reheat.
4. Spray any residue in Goo Gone and let sit for five minutes. If using a non-spray product, soak a cloth in Goo Gone and rub onto surface. Then let sit for five minutes.
5. Gently wipe any residue with a microfiber cloth in a circular motion until all residue is removed.
6. Clean surface with a warm, soapy water and re-wax, as needed.
How to Remove Decals or Stickers From Your Car
1. Clean the area around the decal with soapy water to remove any dirt or grime. Wipe dry.
2. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat the top end or corner of decal.
3. Use a plastic scrapper to gently peel one corner of decal.
5. Gently peel back decal while rubbing exposed area with a Goo Gone soaked microfiber cloth. If it becomes hard to pull, repeat step four.
