How to Remove Adhesive Tape Stains


Suede

Follow these steps to remove adhesive tape stains from Suede:

  • Carefully pick off as much excess as possible with your fingertips.
  • Gently rub an artgum eraser over the remaining gummy substance.
  • If that doesn't work, cautiously rub the spot with an emery board or very fine (grade 6/0-8/0) sandpaper.
  • You are attempting to remove a fine layer of the suede, so work carefully.
