While adhesive tapes, such as duct tape, can be helpful in a lot of ways, they can also create some unique problems as well. One of the trickier problems arises when you remove adhesive tape from your carpeting. Namely, that you often find some residue left behind. Luckily, removing adhesive tape residue from carpet doesn't have to be all that impossible or even difficult a task. All you need to do is follow these simple directions.
Keep in mind that the method described here for removing adhesive tape residue from carpet works best for carpeting that is colorfast. If your carpet isn't very colorfast, or the WD-40 happens to damage the carpet in some way, you still have options. The simplest option would be to use the same method listed above, with a slight difference: use rubbing alcohol or dry cleaning solvent instead of the WD-40. After applying the rubbing alcohol, all you need to do is blot the area clean.
