How do you remove a Glue Dot that is stuck to something you don’t want it stuck to?
Glue Dots are designed to create a permanent bond to most surfaces, such as paper. To remove Glue Dots from hard or non-porous surfaces, first try lifting it from the surface using your fingers (a rolling motion with the side of your thumb works well). If the adhesive will not completely come off, use another Glue Dot to help lift it. If that does not work, use an adhesive remover such as UN-DU. <link UN-Du to https://www.timbermate.com.au/un-du/ >
