Getting double-sided tape of a wall...


I bought this gunk off the dollar store to fix a mirror on my bedroom wall, it' s kinda like a thin foam that sticks on both sides. Last night, the mirror fell off and I want to clean the wall as some of the the tape is stuck on it. Tried scrubbing with a wet sponge only to damage the paint finish.

Any good tricks to get rid of it efficiently?

There's a product called Krud Kutter that's pretty good on sticky stuff like that. Lowes and HD and ACE sell it. However, I can't speak for whether or not using it will hurt the paint any further.

Goof off works nice too. May take some paint off too though.

Most products will tend to take some paint off.
