Best way to remove 3M adhesive spray for vinyl wrap

I'm removing the vinyl wrap on interior pieces before I sell it. I'm using goo gone and it's working but taking forever. Is this the best way or is there some secret that I just don't know about. Any input is appreciated.

Goof off is way better. Try that. Works alot faster.

3M also makes an adhesive removing spray. You could try that, with some heat, as well.

Heat it up if you haven't tried already.

I tried this with my heat gun and it started making the pieces really flimsy and I didn't want to warp the plastic when it cooled.

Be careful with Goof Off. It's petroleum based and can damage some plastics!

You shouldn't have used spray adhesive with vinyl. It's adhesive backed already.

Rubbin alcohol always worked for me.

Then it wasn't vinyl, it was fabric. Vinyl will come off cleaning for the most part.

If they used primer 94, which isn't needed, that will take forever to remove.

Not sure about the heating up part but if this works you could try a hair blow dryer rather than a heat gun. Should not melt anything and may have a similar result if infact heat works.


Good luck!

I just removed mine this weekend to wrap it in glass black vinyl. I ran really hot water from the sink over the long pieces and soaked the smaller ones in a bowl of hot water. Exposed long enough to the hot water the glue can be easily rubbed off with a finger.
