Question: How do you ever get old Operating Room tape off the linen successfully? Can a dry-cleaning process remove it?
- Thanks, Carlos Marroquin
Answer 1: Carlos, While visiting Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, N.Y., I observed a very simple but effective procedure. They positioned the old tabe over a Thermopatch machine and heated the area up for 15 seconds. The operator used a balled up wad of tape and briskly rubbed off the old tape. It worked well. If you have any questions, contact Maria in the linen department at Good Samaritan (516) 376-3000 ext #3179.
Anyone else have any methods of removing old tape?
Answer 2: One of the best way that I find out to remove tape out of the linen is the use of varsol which is a petroleum base component. Just spray into the affected area and let set for 1 minute and pull off.
