Q: What is the difference between Draught Dodgers and EMV Perimeter Seal?
A: Great question! Both products provide a seal for the perimeter (sides and top) of an external door. Draught Dodgers are a higher end product that will last many, many years. EMV, being plastic, will not have the longevity that Draught Dodgers have and will not last as long in highly exposed areas. 

Q: I have sticky residue on my door from a previous attempt to draught proof, how do I get it off?
A: The basic idea is to apply a solvent on a cloth to loosen the glue. Once the residue has been loosened from the surface you will find it rolls into balls that are more easily wiped away. Test on a small out of the way patch first.

Here are some solvents to try:

  • De-Solve-It: Smells like oranges but usually works pretty well
  • Methylated Spirits: You might have it already at home. Take care because it can soften acrylic paint
  • Aeroguard (Tropical Strength): Yes, the personal insect repellant in a spray can is a really effective glue remover

With all of these, it's best to wet the glue residue and let the solvent do its thing before trying to remove the residue.
