Elmer's Craft Bond Multi-Purpose Spray is an effective household adhesive used for everyday projects. Its convenient spray-on application allows for more control and even distribution of glue. Just like regular Elmer's paste, the spray glue creates a lasting bond to most common surfaces. The residue can be just as challenging to remove, but can be accomplished rather easily using an adhesive solvent or stain remover available in stores.


Step 1

Choose a household stain remover intended for removing sticky substances and adhesives. Common brands available at home improvement stores and supermarkets act as solvents that safely dissolve glue from virtually any surface.

Step 2

Apply the solvent according to the product label. This may require spraying it directly onto the glue stain or applying it to a cloth beforehand.

Step 3

Allow the solvent to soften the spray glue for the instructed period of time. This can take anywhere from a few seconds to one minute.

Step 4

Wipe the affected area with a clean rag or cloth to loosen the glue. Simply apply more of the stain remover until the adhesive has been completely dissolved.
