How to Remove Adhesive Treads & Bathtub Appliques

How to Remove Treads

  1. Free one edge with fingernail, then peel tread slowly away from surface.
  2. Soak any remaining adhesive residue with spray stain remover, wait 15 minutes then wipe with a clean, dry rag.

If you don’t have spray stain remover, products like Goo Gone or WD-40 can also work to soften the adhesive.


If you use this adhesive removal solution, it may leave your tub’s surface very slippery. Please be aware of this and clean your tub thoroughly using a non-silicon based cleaning solution, like Comet, before the tub is used.
