Catherine asked: I recently bought a new bathroom suite, but I came with cellotape all over it. I have tried to take it off with a scourer, but am afraid to scrub too hard in case it damages the bath and toilet.
Cellotape, also known as sellotape, can leave behind an extremely stubborn residue. Fortunately, a ceramic surface is one of the easiest to rid of this type of mess. Here’s what you need to do.
You Will Need:
- Cloth scouring pad (Scotch-Brite)
Steps to Remove the Residue:
- Spray WD-40 directly onto the cellotape residue.
- Allow it to sit for a few moments so the WD-40 can begin to break down the adhesive.
- Use the cloth scouring pad to clean away the residue. The relatively gentle nature of the cloth scouring pad won’t damage the ceramic, but will give enough abrasion to remove the residue.
- Repeat until all of the cellotape is removed.
Additional Tips and Advice
- If the WD-40 leaves an oily residue behind, wipe it clean with a wet paper towel and a dab of liquid soap.
