    Spray with WD40. Pressure wash or blast with hose.

    Dunno. Soak it good and try after a minute or 2. Rub with your finger and see if it is loosening up. If it is, spray away.

    Use goo gone. Don't drench it, but just wet it (spray bottle type works best here). Let it sit for a little bit and then just wipe it off. Super easy

    If you put it on too thin... its difficult to remove.

    If you have one or two very thin layers, it's really hard. I had found this out last week. Thick layers are the best and the easiest to get off whatever it is your dipping. So watch that overspray.

    My fingers were sooo damn raw when I peeled it off all my wheels. I got it on too thin. Degreaser helps too, but make sure you dont use that anywhere you care about the finish underneath.
