dried modge podge


Date: Tue Apr 13 2004 - 23:49:38 PDT

I think that the dried, clear, hard substance on my white Formica student
tables is dried Modge Podge. :-( After trying several cleaning solutions (hot
water and soap, windex, and shaving cream)to try and get it off my tables...all
ending in failure...I thought I would ask out there if anyone has any
suggestions as to how to safely get this hard and dried substance off my tables?

I would love to have my afterschool students be able to help in the clean up
if at all possible. (I am sure that I could take a razorblade to the crunchy
spots myself if nothing else will dissolve this stuff)

First time using Modge Podge with a large class of students. Lesson learned
- at cleanup time, have students do a complete wipe down of tables with hot
and soapy water and sponges wile the Modge Podge is still wet. I passed out
small sponges and soapy water for personal clean up after the project. Most
people got the area immediatly in front of them on the tables...but we did not
focus on the whole table.
