Ready to work 

Before starting to remove the 3M adhesive rubber pads from the surface of the car, make sure to wear gloves and goggles. When using razor blades, solvents, or putty knives, always use heavy-duty work gloves, goggles, or disposable gloves to protect your skin and eyes. Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area or only in an open place. If you work in a closed garage, be sure to open the windows and install a fan to circulate the air in the garage.


Alcohol Removal

Alcohol is most commonly used for disinfection, so it does little damage to car paint, so this is why alcohol is recommended in the first place. Alcohol can dissolve the adhesive on the 3M adhesive rubber pad, and only a small amount of alcohol can easily remove the 3M adhesive rubber pad.


Gasoline Removal Method

Dip a little gasoline with a soft cloth and gently wipe the sticker of the 3M adhesive rubber pad. Note that because gasoline has a "dissolving" effect on certain plastics or paints, you must be careful to use it. You can first wipe and observe in unimportant places, and use it if nothing happens, but you must be careful not to use too much gasoline, and the wiping time should be as short as possible.


3M Adhesive Remover

3M Adhesive Remover is a thing specially designed to remove 3M adhesive rubber pads. This method is the most effective and safest one. Its detailed usage method will be explained on the product.


Heat removal method

This method is also very effective for removing the 3M adhesive rubber pad. We can use a hot blower to soften the adhesive so that it can be easily removed. However, this method is not very clean for the cured 3M adhesive rubber pad. There may be traces of the 3M adhesive rubber pad after it is removed. At this time, the above method can be used to remove the remaining residue. Like a hairdryer, the 3M adhesive rubber pad can be dissolved by damp heat. Put the wet towel on the 3M adhesive rubber mat, and then use the heated towel. Gently scrub the surface of the car with a towel to peel off the adhesive.
