And then it will be harder to remove them than if you immediately wash the mounting foam with means that are specifically designed for this. However, at first it may seem that everything was washed off, but then under the influence of the sun's rays, the mounting foam may appear yellow spots. They will be hard to scrub.

To launder the foam, it is better to use special products without acetone, for example, Fenosol S, COSMOFEN, PENOSIL and others, which can be purchased as part of kits designed for window care in any hardware stores or markets. The solvent must be applied to a fresh spot and removed after 15 minutes with a clean sponge. With the remaining marks, you must repeat the procedure or use special wipes. Do not press hard on the surface or rub hard, as this may harm it.

How to remove the mounting foam, dried
