    Hi, everyone it is nice to have a great forum where DIYer's can get together and share information on this subject!

    I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me how to remove liquid nails from new quarter around without removing existing stain on boards?
    This is a manufactured hard foam product that is sold by HOME DEPOT!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Cityman

    Hi Cityboy and welcome.

    I hate to sound chilly on your first post, but did you read the directions on the tube? I'm pretty sure it has all you need to know.

    Hi, I have read the instructions on the label and all it said was to use mineral spirits. I went to HOME DEPOT to ask them what to use and they said that they had a chemical that would remove the glue, but it would also remove the stain on the quarter round as well!

    I hope that someone can help with better ideals as the glue is dry!

    Thanks again for your suggestions,

    Cityboy

    I don't think this is going to be possible. Consider replacing the quarter round.

    Do a small test area with mineral spirits and some elbow grease...see what works.
