berniebeaudry Posted August 3, 2012 Report Share Posted August 3, 2012 I've tried all of the good tips to get the tape goo off my lav wires with varying degrees of success. Using chemicals such as lighter fluid, goo gone, denatured alcohol all have the drawback of making the residue soft and spreading it around on the cable. You get it all eventually but it can leave the cable somewhat sticky. I also worry about the effect it might have on the cable jacket over time and multiple cleanings. I remembered reading about using an eraser on tape goo, tried it and it really works well. I'm using a soft eraser that you put over the existing eraser of a pencil. The eraser rubs the dried transpore adhesive right off and doesn't make it gooey. I'm going to try a harder eraser to see if it works any faster or better, but I like how gentle it is on the cable. You get a bunch of eraser particles but its way better than softening the adhesive and spreading it all over the cable. BB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
