Please note that some countertops will yield better results than others. Dekal is not suitable for wooden surfaces, glass, backsplashes, or walls. Avoid cutting directly on it. We are not responsible for any damage or residue. Leaving Dekal on for too long and/or exposing it to too much heat could result in additional residue upon removal. With time and patience, and proper materials and technique, as described on our How to Dekal page, the residue can be thoroughly removed. Please use Dekal wisely and responsibly, and enjoy!
