Re: Removing adhesives



Fullers Earth. Old timers knew it well. Mixed with water to
form a paste.
Once was a household staple for removing splatters and
grease stains from
wallpaper behind the kitchen stove. Spread the paste on the
stain. leave it to
dry. Absorbs the oily stain and leaves the wallpaper clean..
