I recall a thread on this topic, but can't find it. I was admonished for suggesting delim, which has worked for me in the past. There is more than one brand and composition of adhesive. Some can be safely left down for thirty days, some for sixty. The I need to address this situation in the near future. What works best for yall?

Much obliged.

Johnny, I also use delimonene (sp?) to dissolve the adhesive, agitating with a red pad or whatever is handy. Once the adhesive is up, I use Citra-sov to emulsify and flush the delimonene slurry. Works on duct tape and that damty carpet film they leave down for three months.

we used d'lime too.

if not mistaken, the manufacture of the stuff suggests something else though

I used d'lime in the past with a rotary scrubber.
but next time I'll try rubbing alcohol because it rinses easier.

You can also use a soy based solvent. It’s low VOC, easier to rinse...
Apply to affected areas with a 2 gallon pump up, scrub with 175, and rinse HOT....
