  • DO NOT put water on it, I believe they sell a remover.

  • Things you'll need:

    Sandpaper
    Vacuum with upholstery attachment
    Isopropyl Alcohol
    Cloth
    Paint thinner and
    Rubber gloves

    Sandpaper the glue until you have sanded it down. Vacuum the dried particles and debris.
    Put Alcohol in a bowl and dip cloth in alcohol and rub the area where the glue is. Alternate with paint thinner and alcohol.
    Make sure you have good ventilation and use rubber gloves.

  • GOOF OFF. Here's a link to it, you can get it at any hardware store, or wal-mart. It won't smell the best, but after you get the glue out, you can use some soap and water to clean the carpet.

    It's not just a spot remover, it works great!

  • there should be a number on the back of the glue. Call them and ask what the solvent is.
