If you want to use this approach, I would recommend carrying out it on a tiny area due to the fact it requires forever. You are going to need to have to place 1/two liquid fabric softener (I located the low cost dollar retailer stuff performs far better than major brands like Snuggle, and so forth.) and 1/2 water in a spray bottle. Saturate the paper and wait and hour or two. Keep saturating the paper if it appears like it really is drying out.

Scrape once more, re-wet and keep scraping.
