Help! How can I get the glue off the bottom of some plastic cups, where the price tag was?
I've tried WD40, rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover w/acetone, lighter fluid, SOS pad, and Comet Cleanser.
Nine of them cleaned fine using the WD40 but the last three are putting up a fight.
Any help would be appreciated before I take them back the Macy's!
franksolich is somewhat of a snob about this.
Don't buy plastic eating-ware.
Buy only glass, china preferred.

2. Sometimes adhesives will freeze and let go.

3. I always get scotch tape and keep putting it on and pulling it off, taking a little of the glue at a time. It doesn't work on everything, but it usually does. When too much glue is on the tape, you just grab another piece and continue.
And from what I have heard (although I have not used it myself), WD-40 sometimes needs to be left on for a while to soak in and react with the glue.
The curmudgeonette primitive above is a pal of the big guy's.
One wonders if she knows where the big guy's hiding, and why he's hiding.
