Adhesive sprays are convenient and effective spray-on glue used for everyday craft, home improvement and redecorating projects. Like standard glue, the adhesive forms a strong bond with other surfaces. The spray-on adhesive container helps you apply the glue evenly over the surface area. If you inadvertently spray other objects or get it on your clothes, removing the spray-on glue can present a challenge. You do not have to go back to the store and purchase special spray-on adhesive removal supplies--use items you already have in your laundry room.

    General Removal

  1. 1

    Spray the stain removal product of your choice directly on the spray-on glue.

  2. 2

    Set the item to the side. Allow the cleaning solution to sit on the residue according to the manufacturer's suggestions. If the manufacturer does not have directions that specifically address glue, follow any suggestions they provide for sticky substances.

  3. 3

    Use a lint-free cloth to wipe the spray-on adhesive residue away. Repeat the process if necessary.

    Fragile Items

  1. 1

    Spray the stain remover directly onto a lint-free cloth if you are removing the spray-on adhesive from an item that cannot get wet. Put it aside while you follow step 2.

  2. 2

    Tear off a length of masking tape and press it over the glue; the tape will bond with the adhesive. Swiftly pull the tape away.

  3. 3

    Gently wipe the remaining residue with the lint-free cloth. Continue to wipe until the residue is gone.
