The Easiest Way to Remove Adhesive Treads & Appliques
Without the right tools, removing our Tub Tattoos, Adhesive Safety Treads or Shower Splash Clips can be challenging. We use very strong glue with all our adhesive bathtub treads, which 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 remove your treads.
How to Remove Treads
- Gather your supplies:
- A household adhesive remover. We recommend Goo Gone, which can be purchased at most local hardware stores. WD-40 works well too.
- A stiff dull (plastic) putty knife.
If you use this 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, like Comet, before the tub is used.
