The Easy Way to Remove Adhesive Treads & Appliques
Without proper technique and the right combination of tools, removing our Tub Tattoos, Shower Safety Treads or Shower Splash Clips can be challenging. We use very strong glue with all our adhesive bathtub treads, which is great and provides long-life for your product, but sometimes it can be challenging to remove. The good news is that this tutorial will explain exactly what you need to do to easily remove them.
Follow the directions below:
- First, get together the following list of supplies:
- A household adhesive remover. We recommend GooGone, which can be purchased at most local hardware stores. We've also found that WD40 works well too.
- A stiff dull (plastic) putty knife.
If you use an adhesive removal solution it will leave your tub's surface very slippery. Please be aware of this and clean your tub thoroughly using a non-silicon based cleaning solution before the next time the tub is used. Comet works well.
