I have added some #10 zippers to the bottom edge of the sail cover so I can use the sailcovers like sausage bags when trailering my Core Sound, works great..... except for I got kinda sloppy with the basting tape, the 129 type. Got some of this stuff on the zipper teeth. Any ideas on removing the sticky stuff from the zipper teeth?
Thanks
Jay

Hi Jay,

It is not easy to remove the adhesive. My best suggestion is to use GooGone and a soft rag. It will take a bit of work if you have lots of adhesive to remove.
Best Regards,
