Default Glue removal

Anyone have good advice on removing glue from a '48 Leaf? The regular soaking tricks will not budge this stuff!!

Some glues are almost impossible to remove. I have never tried anything but water. IF that doesn't work then the glue is permanent, to me.

If it's rubber cement, there's a product called Doc Edington's rubber cement thinner that is formulated to dissolve rubber cement without damaging any paper involved.

If it's a valuable item, bring it to a restorer and don't f_ck with it. Lesser items, try "Goof Off" or lighter fluid or some other highly volatile substance...and don't puff your see-gar while cleaning unless you want your heavenly reward.

If the paper is already stained or damaged, then you really need a conservator - some of them work wonders.

#4 and #5. You are telling a fellow board member to deliberately alter a card. Something we all here very diligently try to prevent. Its one thing to give it a bath in some water for a light soiling but anything past that point is pretty much altering IMO. I hope the OP has plans to keep the card or give a full disclosure if he does clean it.

If warm water does not lessen the appearance of the glue, it will just have to stay. My only regret is there was a small area of paper loss when first removed. Thanks for the ideas.

Yes it is. The cards are technically chemicals also.

The resulting paper loss issue is ALWAYS my concern when trying to get something off of a card. It is the reason I pass on quite a few cards too. Ya' never know what is going to happen, for certain, when trying to remove anything from a card. A lot of times more comes off than hoped for.
