Does anybody have a sure-fire way of removing the glue from a sail after the numbers have been removed, please?

I will probably call Jeckells on Monday, but I thoughtI'd ask here first...

Try Acetone (nail varnish remover) Tesco's but try on a small unimpotant area first in case it disolves the sail material.

I have quite a bit of that, but thought it might be a little too volatile. Meths works up to a point and like acetone is soluble in water, but you have longer to work with it because it's less volatile.

If it's nice again tomorrow, I'll have a bash with the aceteone...

If you have a nice, friendly double glazing company near you then nip and buy a bottle of 'frame cleaner', brilliant stuff, especially for cleaning grease from around the galley area. Great for glue sniffers too, so take care! I successively cleaned the number adhesive off a Mirror sail, and that was a l-o-n-g number.

Google for 'Goo Gone' heard good reports but have not tried it.  If it works let me know and I'll keep some in stock.

JM, did you use a nailbrush or similar to remove the residue from the weave of the cloth?

ABC, no. I found that the resultant goo peeled away, carrying the stuff out of the weave as I rubbed it off.
Not sure how good it would be on flax or Egyptian cotton though!

Not that vintage, sadly - terylene or some shiny equivalent I'm afraid!!!

However there is still quite a course weave in this Jeckells rag & I think it is quite deep down (the gunk that is)

I've used acetone successfully on dacron/polyester sails, although that was many years ago so perhaps there is something better around these days. I found that a toothbrush worked best to get the goo out of the weave.
