Goo Gone usually works well.

What kind of glue. And why? And how did you meet all of the Barbara's part of my life that still glue things to walls?

Japanese American Barbara
Spanish Translator Barbara
Blonde Barbara
Bitte Bob Barbara
Babs

Contrary to prior post you cannot and should not start tossing solvents at glue and expect things to work. Is the Barbara you mention somewhere between the age of 8-10 or 30-50? I can tell you with 90 percent accuracy what glue was used in either age range.

Did your Barbara, in either age range, watch something having to do with the criminal Martha Stewart and her passion for glue guns? Hmmm. If in the 8-10 yo range you, as a responsible parent did not let her have access to contact or rubber cement?

Just to try things out. Why not buy some plastic razor blades and see how much you can get off slipping under the glue? Your paint store should have them but, as you know, you can get anything ordered online delivered to you tomorrow. This is just one source. Sorry the exorbitant price of $2 for 100 but fixing damages from all Barbara's in the World has to cost someone? Of course all of mine still insist on talking to me. I am going to write a horror novel. Someday. Soon.

Seriously, Oops is another brand name. Krud Kutter is alright too. Read the warnings and take heed of what they can each do to the color of surfaces you apply them too.

Please use any and all with adequate ventilation OK?
