Full Answer

The paper towel should be applied directly to the glue, and the vinegar allowed to thoroughly soak into the glue and surrounding wood. Once the desired area is soaked, the paper towel should be placed over it and left to sit for 15 minutes, allowing the vinegar to break down the glue. The glue can then be tested for removal, and the process may be repeated, as necessary.
