Salty Dogs: My good brother loaned me his runabout, which has a german made convertible top (i.e., ungodly expensive)similar to a convertible auto top. While puttering about, it began to rain, and noticing two small holes in the top, NOT WILLING TO LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE, I put two pieces of duct tape on the canvas.

My brother has agreed that he will not kill me if I can just get the duct tape goo off the canvas top. Can anyone recommend a product that will take the goo off without damaging the canvas waterproofing? THANKS

Try "Goo-Gone". It should be available in the adhesives department in a hardware store. Or you might try "Goof-Off", a product for removing dryed latex paint. Should be available from the paint section of a hardware store or paint shop.

Some things are eternal. Remind your brother that he'll burn in eternity if he removes duct tape from anything, ever. And he'll be bound, in his torment, by duct tape.

How about putting a bag of ice cubes on it until it solidifies and then picking it off?

Goo Gone or De-Solv-It will take it off, but they'll probably also take off the waterproofing. If you use them, do so by dipping a q-tip in the cleaner and dabbing it on the duct tape goo. Don't rub it onto the fabric itself.

if you've ever read the book"one hundred uses for duct tape" use #37 states the best solution for duct tape goo is to ducttape over it. http://media5.hypernet.com/~dick/ubb/wink.gif

See if you can get a copy of Eloise's (sp?) Helpful hints. All kinds of stuff in there about getting rid of all kinds of stuff. It might have been there I read about using Mayo.

There were some stains on the bandsaw I was given that resisted everything I tried on them. For reasons I will never know, I tried a bit of Never-dull on them and they came right off. No rubbing, no scratches.

Here's an idea: http://www.pandorum.com/archive/0005.shtml

Mineral spirits will take it off without much effect on material.

Lighter fluid will do as well and dry much quicker.

Best part about Dave's answer is that not only does lighter fluid work, but lighter fluid and a match works really fast, dries super fast, and you'll never have to worry about whether the goo came off or not

Actually if you use the match the canvas will go away and you'll be left with the goo. We use Deatchol from Ferndale Laboratories here at the hospital for removing goo. It's not even harmful to the patients.
