  2. I used to use Formby's "furniture Cleaner", but I can't find it
    anymore. Now, all I can buy is one brand, or another citrus cleaner. the
    last "Goo Gone" I bought is, you guessed it, citrus based.

  4. Waalll. It's not adhesive, it's the pouch's vinyl material redissolving in
    the stuff that was originally put on. In other words, the only way you can
    stop it is to remove the rest of the vinyl down to the cloth backing.

    The biggest problem was that the dog was trying to pull away, so my
    wife had to push him toward the cactus and hold him there until I
    extricated the tongue. He *never* went near a cactus again ;-)

  6. The custodial people use this stuff that's mineral spirit based, for
    removing chewing gum and graffitti. It smells like it has kerosene or
    turpentine or such. Also, one guy in our shop has a bottle of "Fedron",
    which I don't really know what's in it. He has it in a plastic soft
    drink bottle, so I printed out a skull and crossbones and gave it to him
    to put on the bottle. http://www.fedron.com/

    Well, just a couple of days ago, a cow-orker showed me some transparent
    duct tape. I pooh-poohed the idea, even though I could see that it was
    transparent; after all, who's ever heard of such a thing? But I checked
    the roll itself, and it _did_ say "transparent duct tape." How 'bout
    that! :)

    As far as that, I've used "adhesive tape" - the white stuff you get at
    the pharmacy to make big bandages with gauze and stuff. The one major
    wart (a plantar wart right in the middle of the sole of my heel, but,
    oddly, painless) kinda looked like it was getting weak, but within
    a day or so about 8 little wartlets had started to spring up. I took
    the tape off, daddy wart came back, and the little babies went away.

    One time when I was in my early pre-teens, I ripped a wart out by the
    roots. Seriously - I used a clipper and tiny scissors to cut away
    as much as I could, and it had like a core, which I pulled out
    with long-nosed pliers. Hurt like a bastard, but it was kind a "good"
    hurt, coz Mr. Wart had left the Foot. And it didn't hurt for long, but
    it bled profusely, to the degree that I thought it'd never stop. The
    blood was just running out of the hole, not like when you nick your
    thumb in the kitchen - it was like someone (Moi?) had bored a 1/8" (3mm)
    hole right into my bloodstream. But it eventually healed. Now I have a
    new one but I'm too old to start using hand tools on the sole of my
    foot! (i.e. I don't bend that way any more )-; )

    Cheers!

  8. Time to step up to power tools? ;-)

    I walked into a freinds two way radio shop one day to see him with a
    sanding disk in a power drill, grinding a callus off his foot. I had
    seen him pull some other stupid stunts, but after that I didn't let him
    near any of my tools.

    Maybe if you let it lie in the sun for a few hours, or a day, depending.
    What's happened is one (or more) of the componenets of the adhesive got
    mixed with one (or more) of your cleaning nostrums, soaked into the
    vinyl, and is acting as a plasticizer. It will probably take as long to
    leach out of the plastic as however long the sticker was actually on it.
    )-;

    Let us know if you have any luck, either way!

    I heard that the virus that causes warts (especially plantar warts on
    the soles of the feet) cannot stand much heat, and soaking the wart in
    very hot water for a half hour or so a night will get rid of it in
    about a week. No need to soak your whole foot, just dip the spot with
    the wart in water as hot as you can stand.

    I haven't had a need to try this, but it comes highly recommended by a
    friend who used it.

    Hi Mark,

    The sticky stuff that exudes from vinyl pouches, etc is called
    plasticizer. It is the gorp that makes the PVC plastic they use
    to make the pouch all soft and cuddly. Were it not for the plasticizer,
    the pouch would be hard and brittle like a piece of PVC tubing.

    Well, the plasticizer starts to leak out from the day the plastic
    is new, and only gets worse. As it disappears from the inside of the
    vinyl, the vinyl starts to get brittle and crack.

    To get it off, you need something that will dissolve it. Not much
    will. Lacquer thinner does a fair job, the clear cleaner/primer used
    in the gluing process for PVC pipes wipes it away easily, but will also
    attack the vinyl....primer is also not real good for you... but plumbers
    are saturated in the stuff all the time.

  15. Rich, you give a new meaning to the term "Rip it out by the roots?"

    HPV human papilloma virus is what causes plantar warts and a whole
    lotta other problems. Here's a really interesting reading about it.

  16. Well, the virus is inside of the cells of your body, so it stands to
    reason that if the heat is bad for the virus it will also be bad for
    the rest of the cell.

    Something like 30 percent have good results with a placebo, so that
    may be the reason for your friend's success. See URL for more info.

    I was reading this info and other, and I saw that the laser was one
    method of treatment. Basically just burn the wart away, which may
    leave some scarring. On thing that no one has brought up is treatment
    using a soldering iron. If heat can get rid of it, why not just use a
    small tipped soldering iron to heat it? Might be very painful!

    Touching a soldering iron just long enough to make the skin stink and
    turn yellow does not hurt all that much.
    Try grabbing a metal pot out of a 350F oven some time and *hold* it
    for 10-15 seconds.....
     
  18. It's a solvent perhaps- probably the "plasticizer" from something it was in
    contact with. Ever use a rubber grommet in a plastic project box? After a
    while, the plastic box dissolves and the grommet gets stiff. Same concept.
    Also, for the newbies- never store those rubber grommets in your clear
    polystyrene plastic parts drawers- they too will melt into goo after a few
    months. Once that starts, there is no way back.

    Cheers!
