I have a couple of questions which I am sure someone here will be able to answer.
Problem No 1. I have bought some "vintage" mens handkerchiefs which are still in the box. They are made of swiss cotton and unfortunately they have been kept in place in their box with sticky tape. Over the years the tape and glue have deteriorated and now there are nasty yellow marks that I would like to remove. Any help would be most welcome.
Problem No 2. This is more of a general question. I have a hot glue gun which I have all kinds of difficulty with. Should I just throw it in the bin or can it be useful. It seems to take forever to heat up but once it does the glue seeps even when I don't want it too and it is really stringy (like cheese on pizza) and I end up in a terrible mess.
If it is a lost cause can I have some suggestions regarding the use of adhesives/glues. They are my most problematic materials but I do find they have their uses.
