How to dissolve 'no more nails'

Postby geraghty85 » Tue Nov 09, 2010 9:56 pm

Hi - I fixed a sign to my exterior brick wall with no more nails a couple of years ago. Now trying to remove it... I've removed the sign but am left with the adhesive on the brick wall and in the grooves. I've tried sanding it off, heating with a hair dryer and using acetone but nothing has worked. I need to dissolve it off my wall and no idea how to do it. Please help. Thanks.
