Default Removing Stomp pad

I was just wondering if it would be cool to put a hair dryer on its highest setting on a stomp pad to melt the glue and then peel it off and clean the residue with sunflower oil? Would that ruin the top sheet in anyway? Cause i put it in a kinda retarded spot.

I'm guessing to the outside of the binding..

Savvy you know, now that you told everyone you MUST post a pic

I have used a hair dryer and WD40 to take them off with no issues.

I have the answer you seek. But I will need to see pictures first.......

A hair dryer (careful not to heat the board too much) and some form of petroleum based fluid (or base cleaner) will usually get the pad and the residue off. Use a scraper (carefully) if you've not got a hair dryer.

It should be almost impossible for a hair dryer to damage a board so go crazy with it. If you need to use something to scrape/pry the pad off use something plastic.

I know it should be almost impossible but i need to know (if there is)at what point it could cause damage. Cause i don't really know what is too hot and what is warm. When i take a warm shower, i take a 200 degree Celsius shower.

Water boils at 100 deg Celsius so you are saying you double that and don't get hurt at all................ plus can a water heater even get that hot.

I'm not being serious. What I'm trying to say is my warm might be different than your warm.

If you can feel the heat on the underside of the board and its "hotter than luke warm" then id say you're getting in the upper range of too hot. If the wax has become quite pliable and is coming off then your definitely gone too hot.

Wouldn't 200deg water be steam?
