I have removed old peel and stick tile in my bathroom and it has left a very sticky residue. What can I use to take this off? Pine-sol, vinegar, and elbow grease aren't working too well...

Thanks
Craig

dont worry to much about the adhesive (sticky stuff) brush a little thin set (dry powder only )on the cement,that will fix it.good luck

I am doing the same thing in my kitchen. So you are saying to just leave the glue down and sprinkle thinset over it?
