Masking tape residue

The Old House Web

The problem: Our pre-1920 home has masking tape around all thewindows. How do I remove the sticky residue that is left when I peel the tapeoff?

The solution: As a native of the Virginia Beach area, I lived throughlots of hurricane warnings and we went through lots of masking tape for the windows.

To remove the sitcky residue, spray on WD-40 and just let it sit for a moment. Then use a razor blade to scrape off the mess. This also works on pricetage, duct tape and anything else with adhesive. -- Rose, on the OHW bulletinboards.
