sticky paws...what a mess!!

my cats are to the point where they completely ignore the Sticky Paws strips, so I've been going around removing them, and let me tell you...what a mess!! what a pain in the a**!! they are VERY difficult to remove, esp. from woodwork, and I don't care what it says, they DO leave a residue. I've just spent almost 30 minutes removing just two strips from doorway moulding, and I've got close to a dozen to go. ick!!

I totally agree with you. I just went through the same thing.... Next time, I'll just buy regular double-sided tape!

Bummer. I've never used those. Well, I tried regular packing tape, Thomas ate it.

But for residue, Goo Gone usually works great. I use it whenever I have that problem from tape, etc.

WD40 works great. Simply spray in on the residue and then use a rough rag and rub it off. It also work great to get bumper stickers off your car and stickers off windows.

Spent two hours yesterday getting tape glue off a customers car. She got a window knocks out over the weekend and used a plastic bag and duct tape to cover it up. The glue stays on the paint. WD is great to take tape glue off.

hey, thanks!! I was using Goo Gone, and that worked, but very slowly. WD-40 shouldn't hurt the finish, either.

You might also try using plain rubbing alcohol to remove the glue- stickiness. I know it works wonders on the sticky side of car window tint.

CHEAP too!
