    Removing Blu Tack can sometimes be a little more complicated than simply peeling it off. If the paint on your walls is too thin, it may peel off with the Blu Tack, and if the wall surface is at all porous, oils from the adhesive can seep into it. Careful cleaning can generally take care of these stains and leave the walls unblemished.

    Have you gotten Blu-Tack stuck in your hair? Pour a decent amount of baby oil onto the area where the Blu Tack is stuck. Work the baby oil into the Blu-Tack, but don't try and pull it the Blu Tack out yet! Leave the baby oil to soak in for about 5 minutes, then you should be able to pull the Blu-Tack out.
