Full Answer

  1. Saturate the adhesive with baby oil

    Rub baby oil over the adhesive with a soft cloth until it appears damp. Avoid using too much oil. Let the oil sit on the surface for one minute to penetrate the adhesive.

  2. Scrub the adhesive with a plastic scouring pad

    Rub the oil-soaked adhesive in a circular motion with a plastic scouring pad. Do not use metal scouring pads to avoid scratches. If the adhesive dries during scrubbing, add a little more baby oil to keep it moist. Continue scrubbing until all the adhesive is removed.

  3. Wash the baby oil off with soap and water

    Wet a soft cloth with warm, soapy water, and rub it over the surface to remove the baby oil and any remaining adhesive residue.

  4. Rinse the surface

    Wipe the surface thoroughly with a clean, wet cloth to remove the soap.

  5. Buff the surface

    Rub the surface in a circular motion with a soft, dry cloth until it is dry and shiny.
