How to Remove Tape Off of a Painted Doorby HomeRepairExpert.com
Tape is alternatively convenient and frustrating. While everyone seems to now reach for this product to hang everything, they do so without giving a thought to the damage it may do to the surface beneath. And many parents have experienced the pain of having a child discover the fun of adhering long pieces of clear tape all over his bedroom walls. Painted surfaces are the most difficult when removing tape without leaving residue or marring, but it is possible to do so gently and leave no sign of this sticky situation behind.
Things You'll Need
- White distilled vinegar
- Soft cloth
- Single-edge razor
Step 1Hold the single-edge razor at a 45-degree angle so that you do not remove paint from the door, and gently scrape away as much of the tape as you can.
Step 2Heat a glass of distilled white vinegar in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Soak a sponge in the warm vinegar, and use it to saturate the piece of tape. Allow the tape to sit with the vinegar on it overnight.
Step 3Use the razor, again at a 45-degree angle, to slide underneath the tape and carefully peel it away. Gently scrape away any remaining residue.
Step 4Dampen a soft cloth with plain water, and wipe down the door to remove all of the vinegar.
