Lace can be very fragile, so before you enter the glue removal process, we would like to inform you of a few things to be aware of:
It's easy to rip through your HD lace and ruin your entire setup.
At a minimum, you need a toothbrush and dish soap or conditioner.
For more stubborn glues, you'll need alcohol and cotton balls or adhesive remover.
Give yourself up to 30 minutes of glue removal and take your time.
Step-by-step instructions for removing glue from a former lace wig
The temperature of the water is irrelevant.
Step 2: Take some liquid soap or white conditioner and apply some of it to the glue-covered area.
Don't be afraid to use too much product - the more you use, the easier it will be to remove the glue.
Be sure to focus it on the lace.
Step 3: Pick up your toothbrush and brush some water on it.
Start gently brushing the lace.
Wet your toothbrush again and continue brushing your shoelaces.
Step 4: Take a few minutes to scrub the lace with a toothbrush.
Soon, you'll see the glue start to come off.
Some of it can get stuck in a toothbrush.
If this happens, remove the glue from the brush with your fingers and continue brushing your shoelaces.
Rinse the lace thoroughly and observe it carefully.
If there is more glue on the lace, add more soap or conditioner and continue brushing.
Rinse once more, then continue with the washing and conditioning process as necessary.
If you don't scrub for a long time, you can use a more durable glue remover - alcohol.
Here are the steps to follow for this method:
Step 1: Get rubbing alcohol.
You can use 50% isopropyl alcohol or 91% rubbing alcohol.
50% alcohol won't remove glue as easily as 91%, but both will do.
People often choose 50% alcohol over stronger alcohol because lace tends to be fragile.
Step 2: Set up in a well-ventilated room.
Alcohol can irritate your nasal passages and throat.
Step 3: Soak some cotton balls in the alcohol of your choice.
Make sure the whole cotton ball is soaked in alcohol.
Step 4: Turn your wig inside out onto the glue-covered lace.
Step 5: Start wiping away the glue with a cotton ball -- in quick circles.
It is important to apply mild pressure because the alcohol itself will dissolve the glue.
Focus on one place at a time and be careful not to tug on your shoelaces.
After rubbing the lace for one minute, turn the cotton ball and continue.
Step 6: After a while, you will see the glue come off the lace and transfer to the cotton ball.
Step 7: Removing the glue from the lace may take about half an hour.
It depends on how much glue is on the device.
Step 8: Continue with regular lace front cleaning and conditioning procedures.
Use lace wig adhesive remover
Lace wig glue remover is specially formulated to easily remove the glue from the lace.
Each lace wig adhesive remover has its own set of instructions, but for the most part, you'll use it like this:
Step 1: Spray some makeup remover onto your device and let it sit for a few minutes.
This gives the remover some time to finish its job.
Then, rub the lace with your fingers, scrub it with a toothbrush, or wipe it with a cotton ball dipped in solution.
Step 3: After a few minutes, your lace should be out of glue.
Note: If the instructions on your adhesive remover are different from those described above, follow the instructions on the package.
They come from manufacturers and are more likely to give you the results you are looking for.
Which glue removal option should you choose?
For light gum residues with a thick texture, try soap or conditioner t before trying more radical options.
For moderate to severe glue residues that do not seem to be removed by gentle methods, try alcohol or an appropriate binder remover.
