Tips on removing tape residue Empty Tips on removing tape residue

Post by mousyfriends876 on Tue 19 Nov 2019, 10:35 pm

Hello. I am planning on getting 4 mice in my 36 x 18 x 18 (in) exo terra enclosure. The person I purchased it from had clear packaging tape on the bottom of all the sides (idk why). I removed the tape because it is not safe for mice, but after I did, there was a sticky residue left. Is there any mouse Walk safe way to remove it? Thank you to anybody who replies!!

Hello!

You may be able to get the majority off with some kind of residue cleaner like Goo-Gone, but just be sure to wash the tank out really well after that.

From what I can find on the internet isopropyl alcohol also works, which may be a safer (and cheaper) option. I have no experience with this, however.

If neither of those work I would secure a ceramic/plastic hide over the area or cover it in popsicle sticks so it’s difficult to get to Smile

rubbing alcohol or acetone for sure will get the residue off
