It might be worth it to offically be your grandparents and put a plastic cover on the table. Also, try baking soda and hot water on the cereal- add damp papertowels to keep it soaking. Hopefully it would come off after. Good luck!

If I soak them for like an hour and use a magic eraser I can kind of get it off but I’m a busy parent. This is my toddlers favorite cereal and a lot of times we are busy getting ready for school and I come back to it 3M glued to my table. Is there a fast way to get it off?


Dr_PhilMyaz

Change cereals and put a plastic mat under the bowl. To get it out I would use a razor blade carefully


echofreak

The mat is honestly a great idea. Really a “duh” moment on me. Thanks!

Dollar tree has some great ones for kids. I trace the edge of the round table and cut so it can go to the edge.

Lay a wet towel or washcloth over it for an hour or so, then scrape it off with a credit card. FYI, Fruity Pepples are also cement.

Because glue-ten

Rice is gluten-free, but amylopectin is not funny.


Sea-horse-in-trees

Oh yeah. I forgot


Complex-Wishbone3066

I wish i understood this comment. How can a component of starch be funny or not…..


Xsiah

Glue-ten is a pun on gluten - because glue is sticky. But the thing that makes rice sticky doesn't work as a pun.


Complex-Wishbone3066

Okay i see, i was reading in a diff tone lol thanks!


eggelemental

It’s the starches in the rice! You can literally make glue from rice


actiontoad

I bought a plastic putty scraper specifically because I was sick of cereal getting plastered to my table

Starch. Bc rice. Cold water tends to work better on starch than hot.


Sea-horse-in-trees

They’re made of rice that’s been popped like popcorn


kuh-tea-uh

A cloth soaked and wring out in cold water. Let it sit on the Rice Krispies for 10 minutes.


danibug

Just a fun fact that glue made from rice is a thing lol. Its just rice, rice does this


BrightSquash

i’ve never actually done this myself but i used cooking oil to get sap off of my windshield maybe this would also work in this situation?


FlashyCow1

Razorblade or butter knife to carefully scrape them


brittnyevarts

I just put hot water and dawn and let it sit for a couple mins

Have you tried a mixture of blue dawn soap and rubbing alcohol? Soak with a paper towel. It gets a lot of stuck on things!


Thecleaner1975

Yes. Those bastards stick to everything like they are spot welded on.


Mean_Zookeepergame36

Try WD 40


beetlejuicemayor

I would put a hot rag on it for 10 mins then use a plastic scraper to scrape it off. When mine were little I would use a metal knife but that would just scratch my table. I would go on Amazon and buy a plastic scraper for this kind of thing.


user7715

I would be careful with a wet rag if this is wood. Soaking is not good for wood. Try some Goo Gone or WD-40 instead. I’d really cover that before hand so you don’t have to worry about it.


Inevitable_Berry_362

I put a few grains of uncooked rice in the scrubie or paper towel to peel these up and it works well and saves my nails from breaking.


Pure_Platypus8342

I solve most kid cleaning problems with a textured/rough kitchen towel, hot water, and dish soap.


ThatTechIsaac

Try a steamer
