/ Glass splashback - how to remove (safely)?
The best suggestions I've been offered so far have been to cover the face of the glass with tape eg duct tape, or Blue Peter stylee sticky-backed plastic, and then proceed as for tiles. While this approach seems likely to work, I'm wondering if there are better ways to do it?
The grab adhesives usually used for that kind of thing are often pretty crap if moisture/oils are present, I expect that your splash back has been there yonks and so the adhesive is pretty well cured though.
I wouldn't bother but you could try some WD40 down the back it might work over time,
one of our technicians disassembled a thread locked vacuum chamber this week, which is probably a similar problem, he used something i've never heard off, he has gone home now. I can ask him on monday.
As in nail varnish remover? Might take quite a few bottles! Is there a lower-cost way to source it than from Superdrug??! Ah, a quick Google suggests that it is possible to buy it in larger quantities.
Ask a materials/chemistry/biology student
It should be safety glass. Slip a saw blade down the back and wiggle it around until you break the seal.
