Sticky tack, oh blue goo! How am I to remove you?

How to deal with sticky tack on concrete walls

  1. Pull as much off as you can with your fingers. This is almost as much fun as it was to play with gum when you were a kid.
  2. Scrape with a fork. This requires a little more concentration. Pretend it's extreme zen gardening.
  3. Notice the blue blob that still remains in spite of step one and two? Attack it with peanut butter, preferably the chunky kind. Peanut butter gets gum out of hair, right? Right?
  4. Enjoy the aromatherapy of peanut butter in the air. Does it bring back memories of mud pies and bike races? Now, whirl plastic gooey blobs with a wet wipe. Remember, wet wipes were designed for this kind of job.
  5. Notice the (now thinner) blue blob that remains in spite of steps 1-4? Throw some talcum powder on it. This will act as an abrasive and absorb any remaining peanut butter/wet wipe juice (fool the ants?).
  6. Almost there. Attack the talcum plastic mix like Grandma's silver before tea with the queen (whatever that means..eh). Then, stand back and enjoy...

The blue blobs on your wall!!

Here's the vote: What agent will eventually remove the sticky tack from my wall? Gasoline, WD-40, fresh paint, nail polish remover, a mixture of fish sauce and windex, sand and kafir lime leaves, nothing... it's a lost cause, or a nice painting?

Time will tell. muhahaha. Time will tell.
