How to Remove Shower Door Glue Stains From Tubs


Those tiny glue humps, left from a recent shower door repair, stare at you mockingly from your bathtub surface. The bonding power of the adhesive holds steadfastly to a flat surface, requiring a powerful product to break down the glue's stronghold without etching the tub. With the right techniques you can banish those rigid lumps from your tub without breaking a sweat.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper towels
  • Adhesive remover or white vinegar
  • Plastic scraper
  • Powdered bathtub cleaner
  • Nylon scrubber
  • Liquid bathroom cleaner
  • Sponge
  • Saturate paper towels with an adhesive remover or white vinegar. Fold the paper towels two times and press each one onto a glue stain. Leave the paper towels on the glue for an hour. Spray or re-wet the paper towels with the glue remover or vinegar if they begin to dry.

  • Remove the paper towels. Place a plastic scraper at the edge of a glue stain. Slowly slice the glue from the tub surface. Repeat the process on all the remaining glue stains.

  • Cover the remaining glue residue with a powdered bathtub cleaner. Wet a nylon scrubber with water and scrub the residue from the tub surface. Apply additional cleaner if needed to remove all the glue from the tub.

  • Spray a liquid bathtub cleaner over the affected area. Wipe the surface with a damp sponge to remove any powdered cleaner left from the glue removal process.

Tips & Warnings

  • Because of fumes, ventilate the room when using adhesive remover.
