Bostik Best Glue is one of the most used adhesives for hardwood flooring on the market today. This super strong glue is one of few that has an installation warranty, when used in combination with Mirage engineered wood flooring. While Bostik is more than capable of holding your flooring in place, it can be a bit more difficult to remove from unwanted areas, especially after it has cured. The best way to remove Bostik glue is to remove it as you proceed through the installation process.

Apply a liberal amount of white spirit to a soft, clean cloth. Bostik also manufactures their own brand of adhesive remover that is specifically designed to remove the glue.

Wipe the area that has the excess glue as soon as you notice it. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get off.

Use another clean cloth to remove any white spirit residue or leftover adhesive remover. Leaving these products on your hardwood floor could damage the finish.

Scrub the area harder with a cloth, if the glue has cured. If you used the glue on a tile floor, you can be more liberal with your cleaning agents, because you don't have to worry about ruining the finish.
