    I was not paying attention as I was loading some chipboard in my Xyron 510 and laid them on the wrong side and the adhesive was applied to the top and not the bottom. I used a gum eraser on the surface and that has helped a lot, but it is still tacky to touch. Anyone have any suggestions on how to take this off? Thanks

    Go buy some Undo. I think that might do the trick for you!

    Boy! I wish I could help you out. Since the Undojust makes it sticky again, I guess the cornstarch is the best suggestion but, you would not be able to use what you put the glue on.

    bummer!

    How about sprinkle it with glitter/tiny beads and use it that way?

    You could try baby powder but I don't know that it would work any better than corn starch.

    Try using undu. While the glue is still wet gently use a tissue to wipe the residue off the chipboard. I do this all the time when I remove something and the glue is still on the paper. Did this make sense?

    Baby Powder or Cornstarch will neutralize the adhesive, you could also adhere printed paper over the top of the chipboard, after you do that sanding the edges makes it look cool. You could also sponge on some ink or acrylic paint. Oops forgot to mention stamp a design on them and then spray seal them. Pretty much anything to kind of hide/disguise the adhesive residue

    Thanks much guys. The gum eraser took most of it off and then the powder finished it off smooth. I just hope it will remain tacky free over time. I love the idea of placing paper over it and then sanding. That would have been the quickest option at the time. I will save this idea to do it "on purpose" the next time. Thanks guys for all of your help and suggestions. Great team here!
