Your help please if you know a solution to my problem.
My mother is partially sighted and on various appliances around the house we have put Hi-Mark TM tactile dots. She no longer lives at home and we want to clean off all these dots. But how? Anybody know with what we can remove these un-sightly dots of plastic?
In anticipation of your help, thank you.

I do not know- have you tried googling or maybe get in touch with the RNIB.

I have googled and there is an email address- you would have to double check that it is the correct company.

Have you tried nail polish remover, the kind with acetone? Or Lakeland and B&Q do sticky stuff remover which takes glue, sellotape etc off walks. You could try those.

Warming the glue/adhesive with a hairdryer should make it easier to remove.
