Hi guys. After I finished my outdoor painting of concrete window sills, I've struggled to get a few remaining bits of masking tape off. I don't think I should have left it on for as long as I did, but it's also cheap masking tape. There are a few pieces that didn't come away and are stuck to the upvc frames. What do you recommend? I don't have a heat gun but I do have a hairdryer if that would work to loosen up the glue? I also have a bottle of no nonsense sealant remover which I find pretty good for a lot of things. And then there's white spirit. I'd go and try them out but it's raining at the moment.

And for future use for masking outdoors and also walls and tiles indoors, is there a better brand of masking tape I should buy that wouldn't give me this issue?
