      It's the secret compartment in my Nexy Rucksack and Scarlet Handbag. My old coach tried to talk me out of that bag telling me it was too small for me. (I waz known to carry 24pk of MGD to tourneys) but I wasn't buying her ruse.

      Try to rub it off horizontally or vertically to prevent damaging the sponge. If the glue is thick enough, you can simply peel it off.

      I take some cloth and i pour some zippo fuel over it and start to rub the sponge with "fueled cloth" ^^.
      This makes removing glue from sponge much easier. For me at least

      I actually ended up doing the parafine style remove lol, + my thumb. Didn't take me too long but still no fun.
      I think I'l buy Butterfly free chack the next time.
      anyhow, I assume putting glue on top of the glue would have no cons appart from the fact that you don't get the "re-glued" effect. Which I presume the chinese have some reason for doing, better tension in the sponge if you remove? or something like that? as long as the glue is evenly on the sponge and would probably not leave any bubles there should be no problem, right?

      All these LULZ of glue removal has kept me using regular rubber cement as my choice of adhering rubbers to the blade, but certain rubbers like Tenergy and Red Evo series, i would use water based glue the first time, rubber cement is not the way to go for the first gluing job on those.

      Take a table tennis ball and rub it over the glue.it causes the glue to roll together,which can then be easily removed.it seems difficult at first,but after that its easy

      x When I rubbed with a ball to Tenergy 05 FX and Bluestorm Z2, small sponge fragments had come out with glue. It took an hour that I fed up with it. Lots of holes on sponge in the end.

      x When I rubbed with thumb, my thumb had suffered a lot. I found very ineffective to rub. Requires lots of energy.

      When I try to peel the glue off by small movements, tried to peel the glue off in one peace, I spend less than 20 mins for each less energy, no suffering. I know it is not easy to peel off glue from springy sponges, stick on with peeling it off even if it doesn't come out in one peace. Additional tip while peeling off; try holding rubber. That will make you to grab glue easier.

      edit: grammar

      I never had big problems with getting old glue out from the sponge, probably because I put two layers on rubber and one on the blade (kind of habit from speed-glue era, bad or good who knows). If you have problem with getting glue layer out it might be because you have thin layer, just put there one more, let it dry and remove without problems. Works in 99% (the rest are usually special sponge types which are hard to clean by any method).

      I just use a table tennis ball and rub the sponge. Works great to remove old glue!

      Use masking tape, it works great with the new waterbased glue! For the old VOC glue put a new layer of VOC glue over the old glue so the glue layer is thicker, then try to get grip on the glue at a side of the rubber and take the glue of. At my frame I removed the VOC glue with Petrol but it wasn't that easy so I don't know if it's better than rubbing it with your thumb.

      On YouTube are many videos about the usage of the masking tape on rubbers!

      Succes!

      I think I've posted this already on a different more recent thread with the same topic, but anyway, here goes:

      Just pour a drop of oil on the glue layer and let it sink in for a minute. Then start rubbing on the spot where you poured the oil. You'll be able to remove the glue layer(s) easily and without any stress.

      This works with ANY oil (e.g. babyoil, sunfloweroil, any) on ANY kind of glue (speedglue, wbg, latex)!

      I read somewhere that a layer of rc on top of wb glue helps get it off easily but idk if that would be wise to do with a tensor rubber or right before a competition. Thick layers of tear mender work the best for me.
