Today I tried removing one of those stick on thermometers from the outside of my aquarium. It left a big sticky mess, so I decided to use some oops remover to get it off. Well, turns out it clouds acrylic!! Once I realized I was destroying my tank, I stopped using it, so now not only do I have a damaged piece of acrylic, but it's still a huge sticky mess.
So first of all, what can I use to remove the remaining sticky mess?
And second of all, what can I use to buff out the cloudiness? I've been looking at the novus three part scratch/cloudiness remover.
So advice to you all out there, DON'T use oops to clean acrylic.
Learn from my stupidity.
I'll post a pic in my next post. Thanks!
Edit: Also forgot to mention, I tried using a razor blade to scrape off the sticky mess, only to further damage the tank! (Great plan, right?) The top part is the most sticky, and the area towards the bottom isn't sticky at all, and is just hazy from being touched with the oops remover.
