Re: Adhesive removal

Once you get the tape off, is the residue left behind still sticky?  I've
had success removing still sticky adhesive by using both a gummy eraser and
a white (sulfur free) eraser.  Staedler Mars makes both.  Use the gummy
eraser first, then the white, and repeat as needed.  They will combine to
"roll" the adhesive off the paper.
