Remove spray foam insulation


Does anyone know how to remove this stuff other than scraping it all out with whatever I can find? Any tricks?

Remove spray foam insulation


any tricks?

only if you have a gullible husband or children.

I can't think of anything to make it easier.

Curious question: why are you removing the insulation?

I have cut it with a sawzall and used a grinder with a wire wheel. The latter makes a big mess.

Remove spray foam insulation


Well, it's spray foam insulation that someone sprayed into a large chinese bowl. I did, however, figure out that if I got a small chisel and was careful (!), I could, and did, remove all the spray foam from the large bowl. What fun! I was hoping that there might be an easier way, but no. First, I took a sharp knife and scored the whole thing, then used a metal spoon to pop it out. Finally, I used the chisel to get it off the sides and clean it out. Now, I can see all the little goldfish that were painted on the inside of the pot.
Thanks, everyone, for your ideas! The husband one probably wouldn't work. He's down in Palm Springs dove hunting. yum!
