hey...

Well I tried nail polish remover... then also Min cream, Pertol all of it but this damn thing just does not want to get off.

Gave instructions to my driver to fix something near the streering wheel and this chap went and stuck a God's Idol on the front dash.I like to have the front completely clean and just trying to get it back to its original state...

Well will still be trying some solutions..

Cheers!

Try some glue removers.

I am not sure about the name of the remover or such, but i am sure you will find one.
There is one company called Loctite who makes such glues and removers and it is available in india too.

The solution: Duro Super Glue Remover from Loctite. Check out www.loctiteproducts.com
Don't know if it is available in India. You can get it from the US.

You may also try Vaseline. Apply on the affected area and leave for some time. Rub with a cloth.
