Re: [IP] Site Adhesive Residue



What everybody uses most often is brand named "Unisolve". It is nothing more
than an acetone solvent. You can use any of a number of brand names of
acetone solvents from drug stores, they all work. You can also use regular
fingernail polish remover, it's acetone also.
Unisolve comes in individual packages just like your alcohol swabs. It
dissolves the residue like magic.-James
