For science!

Journal, Lauren

Which is which?

I began to experiment with Simlpe Green vs. water to remove the border adhesive.  Here you see a completely organized beginning to an earth-shattering scientific experiment.  What you don’t see is how I kept forgetting to go back and re-wet them since I was looking up useless things on the internet.  So, I wound up slopping Simple Green solution over the whole wall.  It was successful for several reasons: 1) I didn’t cover it with plastic wrap and leave it to sit for a whole hour, 2) I used a plastic scraper instead of a metal one.  Hooray!  The goal is to take it off a foot at a time.  At this rate, I’ll be done by Easter!

    It seems like I used Simple Green to do something once and it took paint off. It was white paint. Maybe it was my old truck? The paint came off of that just from being touched, so on second thought, maybe there’s nothing to worry about.

    Thanks. Thanks for that.

    YAY for Simple Green! I love that stuff! And, it doesn’t smell all that badly either!

    Hi … I think it would be a great accomplishment to be done by Easter … you’re way ahead of me in the home projects department …
