Trying to remove duct tape residue from the Formica trim and metal around
the sink. It doesn't come off easy. Is there a solvent that removes this
stuff easily? Also, would like to be able to live in the house afterwards.
So, I don't want anything too strong smelling, if at all possible. Been
trying to scrape it off. It's a frustrating process.
I am planning to repair the sink once I get this gunk off. There are a few
drip points where the metal meets the counter. I am going to use some sort
of sealant between the seams to eliminate the dripping problem beneath.
There is quite a gap between the metal and sink. The sink is sagging in the
middle somewhat.... it's old. Ideally, it should be replaced. But, I would
imagine a new counter and sink get-up must run a grand or better. Am I on
target with the price. I haven't priced them out at HD.
Also, will be cutting a narrow piece of Formica to replace the piece I
damaged scrapping some of this stuff off. Someone told me to use a utility
knife to cut the Formica. Any tricks to cutting it? I was thinking of
marking it with a pen or pencil. Lying it down on a wooden board. Then,
scoring it before I applied heavy pressure to cut. This thin strip of
Formica will eventually lie on the edge of the sink's metal surface. Any
special glue I should use? I have "Wilsonart International H20" It says
not to use it with copper. Normally,
I guess this product is primarily used with non-metal surfaces. I'm
thinking with such a small section it should be fine.
