I recently had new vinyl floor tiling put down in a rent house. I
believe they used a glue with a brand name "Henry" . They installers
got the glue on the bathtub, the walls, and door frame .... just a
little here and a little there. I cannot get it off with 409, or any
other cleaning fluid so far. I would appreciate any suggestions as to
how I might get things cleaned up.
GooGone,mineral spirits,charcoal grill lighter fluid(petro solvent)
Acetone is one of the stroongest solvents,but can damage plastics.
Of course,you could call up the installers and ASK them what they use as a
Depends on what the tub is made out of. If it is porcelain on steel, you
can try almost anything (solvent) but if it is a fiberglass or acrylic
material, use only goo gone or lighter fluid (napthaline) or an orange
cleaner. Alcohols and soaps won't do a thing to this glue.
Personally, I would try to remove most of it with a (new) razor blade and
then rub out the residue with my fingernail.
