Im back, I forgot to add earlier, the reason the hand sanitizer works is because it has rubbing alcohol in it. So my filing cabinet had a row of tape on one side of the handle and a row of tape on the other side, these run the length of the drawers so I have 2 strips of really old tape about 4-5 feet long. So this morning I put some cooking spray on one part, some veggie oil on another, some mayo on part, and some margarine on another. I let them set for a few hours. While those sat I used the few other things left on the list. Polish remover, worked a little but left marks on the metal. Vaseline helped some but really had to scrub, toothpaste, vinegar, and windex did nothing. The stronger things I did not even try as I was afraid of harming metal,(Kerosene, Paint Thinner, Rubber Cement Thinner, PVC Pipe Cleaner)
Gone- worked some but lots of scrubbing.
. Clean Magic Eraser- did no good
/ Aftershave- didn’t use as it has alcohol and I already know how it works. It was time to try my oils. None of them even touched it, and now I had a big oily mess. So I cleaned off all the stuff and let it dry. I poured eucalyptus oil all over it (4oz bottle at my health food store for $15) waited 5 minutes and I could tell it was working. I got a flat edge piece of plastic and scrapped the adhesive, it came off in big clumps! I did that a few times them wiped all the oil around some more, washed it all off and figured I would apply the oil one more time, but when the metal was dry there was NO MORE adhesive!! This stuff was amazing, plus it cleared my sinuses.
