If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. The last couple of days we have been preparing to move. I had been down in our girls room taking their bunk bed apart and stepped on something stuck and dried on the floor. I realized that it was glue and I have no idea how long it's been there. Unfortunately, my 8 y/o kept her stuffed animals there and it was never noticed and of course she wasn't about to tell her father and I. It's about the size of 6 quarters put together. I have been searching everywhere for a solution and have been coming up with nothing. Everyone I know tells me that it would have to be cut out. We leased the townhome we are in and our lease comes up at the end of December. We are the only people that have lived in here being it's a new complex, no getting out of this one. Does anyone know how to help in this situation? If this helps any, we have light beige carpet and it's only 3 years old. If anyone has any idea the sooner the better...I really don't want to have to pay for it. I just know that the landlord is going to overcharge (based on friends of ours that lived in the complex and moved out).

Elmers is a BRAND name and they make a larger number of different types of products including expoxy and urethanes.

But I am assuming that you are talking about white "school glue" or yellow carpenters glue.

Those can be softened with water. Warm water or white vinegar is faster.

But for a carpet don't soak it.

Probably dab some on and then cover it with a damp cloth. Then in about 30 minutes pick off what you can.

Then repeat.

Thank you Bill, I am going to give that a try. I really appreciate your help. By the way,'s school glue, guess it's obvious that I don't buy glue often. I didn't think about the fact that there would be more than one type.

Again, THANK YOU!!!!
