The $25 will be well spent, to save you time and frustration.

After 10 minutes, take the hair system out of the cleaner and proceed to clean the hair with your lace-cleaning gun. Once all the adhesive is removed, work New Demensions Dual Action Shampoo thoroughly into the hair system. Rinse the hair system with lukewarm water. Repeat at least 2 more times.

They still suggest a gun to use with the solvent. I am quite sure I can clean glue after whatever solvent with that gun. The problem is it's just too much work getting that thing out and the noise it makes.

See....dual action shampoo.... not dish soap :)

From reading on these forms and I know you've been on considerably longer than I ...... but you seem to struggle the most with lace maintenance. What stands out is that you follow a different regimen and length of time wearing.
These differences are what's causing the frustration.

Switch to two weeks atleast one time on a "new system" and see how much easier it will be.

So I bought Ghostbuster for 25€ (plus transport) and one soak takes 2/3...3/4 of the bottle, so 25€ will give me just 1,5 soaks :D. This is unbelievably expensive and there is no way I can use this product. Need cheaper solvents.

You don't use it that way... you dampen the areas that need to be cleaned.

So it's obvious that you know MORE than the professionals...
How do I just dampen all the glue that's there? Any guide somewhere? I can't imagine getting all this glue off with just dampening. How could it penetrate through all the glue? We're not talking about peeling tape off right now from the perimeter, but a full head bond with 4 layers of Ghostbond platinum.

Put Ghost Buster Adhesive Remover in a plastic container. Completely submerge the hair system in the container. The hair system can be left in the solution for 10 minutes to 2 days. The remover should be kept at room temperature for optimal efficiency.

I don't have a lace cleaning gun, and no one I know uses one. You can use one of those squeeze bottles and dampen the areas that need treatment with it, and put that in a closed container.

I don't use this. When I need to get the glue out I use C-22. Did it just today. A couple of sprays in the "problem areas". After about an 18 hour soak, I used cotton balls to rub off the stuck glue, and fairy liquid (dawn) to get the oily residue off the system. Then shampoo, and that was it.

It actually worked quite good, though I let it soak for 2 times: 3 days and 1 night. There still is some residue left, but it's a little bit less than usually and all of it is on the other side of the lace. I guess this can't atleast affect bond as much?

I guess I have to just accept this problem, as it doesn't seem to be too bad for the bond, especially if it's on the other side (more between the hair, than under the base).

Do guys who make a full head bond with liquid adhesive even get it 100% clean?

If someone knows where to get Ghostbuster cheaper, please let me know! Maybe in a huger amount, but cheaper?

Thank you!

Today I learned.

Is this what you have? How well does it work? http://novera.ca/index.php/deluxe-lace-cleaning-gun.html
It makes so much noise that I cannot use it. You don't want to draw too much attention from the people you live with to all of this. Better if all this is as simple, quick and silent as possible. Like you're just going to the bathroom.
