As mentioned in the first part of our adhesive tile cleaning blog removing adhesives need not be difficult as long as you know the proper techniques. It also helps to address the spill as quickly as possible, if that is done than a quick swipe with a paper towel to remove the extra adhesive and speedy washing with soap and water will do.
Just to add to the first part of the blog, when using a blade to remove the softened adhesives make sure the movement of your blade is outward or away from yourself. This will ensure that the chances of cutting yourself by accident is minimized. Another tip is to clean the blade frequently. Should there be an inordinately large amount of glue still present repeat the steps of soaking the cloth and reapplying it on the tile. Then remove softened portions with a blade. Afterwards wash the area with soap and water to remove any residual stickiness. Sometimes people think that its ok not to finish the process off with a soap and water washing. This however is a mistake because residual stickiness will attract dust and lint which will make the spot look darker and dingy. Also keep in mind that the liquids you will use for adhesive removal are flammable so please extinguish any flames or cigarettes near the area. Finally wipe dry.
If the adhesive used is our all time favorite all purpose super glue then the approach will be slightly different. As in all projects or fixer uppers that require adhesives spills happen and working with super glue is no different. Superglue howerver has a high strength level and it is necessary to remove it as soon as one can. As superglue containers are small spillages are usually miniscule and when it dries you can just scrape it off with a blade. If residue is still present then dabbing a cotton soaked in acetone can remove the glue.
