Repairing stain on furniture Sign In/Join 
I'm hoping someone has some insight for me on this. I put a non-stick rug pad on top of my child's dresser that I was using as a changing table so that the changing pad would not slip. Unfortunately, I did not realize that it would be impossible to remove without damaging the dresser and it's finish. I was able to get some touch up paint that is the same stain as the dresser, but I'm not sure how to remove the pad? Anyone have suggestions how I can remove this and repair with the least amount of damage done to the furniture? Turns out it was a brand new, expensive piece of furniture that I'd like to use for my son's lifetime Frown

Couple of things to try?
Freezing temps...Place hard frozen bags of vegetables or meat over the pad and allow it to create a cold area, sometimes cold can help release adhesive qualities of objects.

Goo Gone or other orange oil (or lemon furniture oil) can sometimes be used between the pad and furniture to release the sticky, rubbery surface.

I hope your problem has solved till now if not then use PVC pipe cleaner and tea tree oil. It may work. Try it on affected surface.

Let me know the result.
