    Sticky cricket bat!

    I fitted a protective facing sheet to my new bat at the start of the season. When I applied it I found the adhesive to be quite sticky (as adhesive should be) and messy but, when I lifted the sheet off the bat to reposition it, most of the glue stayed on the bat. I'm guessing that this is going be a nightmare at the end of the season when I come to clean it up and prepare it for next season. How do I get this nasty stick glue off the face of my bat, without causing any damage to the willow?

    Clean it with some cotton and kerosene. Worked for me. But then, I didn't care if something happened to my cricket bat.
    This was a serious post:

    Yeah, you shouldn't take the sheets off without warming up the glue. You probably won't be able to get it off without lifting the willow now.

    Thanks Shri but, tbh I'm not too keen on the idea of using kerosene on a 200 bat.
    Good idea Marcuss that will certainly help but, I'm fairly certain there will still be some glue left on the blade that will need to be removed.

    Just sand the glue off it doesn't damage the bat I had to do it when I removed the scuff sheet from my GM.
