I finished painting my living room ceiling, waited about 20 minutes and attempted to remove the tape. most of it came off, but have to back with razor blade to get the rest off of the hardwood trim . Also, can i leave it on after priming , wait for primer paint to dry, finish paint the room and then remove the tape?

Answer: 
You should remove the tape prior to paint completely drying to avoid pulling paint from area. remove tape while paint is tacky for best results. Pull tape towards the painted area and not away.

I have found that thicker coats of latex, when allowed to dry, might be stronger than the tape and hold some of it in place and/or tear across the painted surface away from the tape edge. The best solution is to carefully remove the tape very soon after painting while the paint is still wet. Alternatively (as you noted), you can run a razor blade carefully along the edge of the tape (this will be a must if you do multiple coats and let it completely dry).
I have not bothered to remove the tape when using a quick dry primer (<=1hr before top coat) before first finish. Certainly if the amount of taping you have to do is minimal, I would remove and re-tape for each coat. With a lot of taping, it is judgment call as to balancing the taping effort with the touch-up effort if some of your edges need to be redone or you have to resort to the razor blade.
Certainly, with some surfaces, you should not leave the tape on for extended period - Goof-off will generally clean the tape reside but obviously it is not advised for some surfaces. Read Less

We had trouble only in a few spaces when removing the tape if it was left on too long after painting. I don't know if there is any solution. If you use the cheaper tape, it's not as sticky, but also does not adhere to the wall as well.

It is typically best to remove your tape before the paint dries. If you wait too long the tape will pull off the paint and leave your primer exposed along the edge. I would suggest your first coat of paint be your finish color, even before priming so if you have "bleeding" it will be the color of choice revealed once the tape is removed.

You do not have to paint the entire section with the finish color, but only along the edge of the tape to seal it from bleeding.) Read Less

Answer: 
The answer depends too much on the speed of drying, which is driven by temperature, humidity and type of paint. The paint just needs to settle to the point at which it will no longer run into the void when you pull the tape. My vote is to remove after each coat or you'll end up pulling off too much of your hard work.

Answer: 
Thank you for asking! You can remove the tape as soon as you would like after painting, or you can leave it on up to 14 days and we would still expect clean removal. Many painters remove the tape promptly after painting in order to stop the paint from drying onto the tape, making their paint line not as clean as it could have been.

The tile in the picture has been washed with detergent and scrubbed with mineral spirits. If the tiles were still outside, I could wet diamond polish. They are inside now where the water spray would do damage. The tape was 1 inch Scotch-Blue used to assist aligning the tiles.

There is a product found at Home Depot call "Goof-off" that I have used to remove the glue from tape on items. It sounds as if you have used the main ingredient, mineral spirits. (The picture looks like the mineral spirits have "bleached" the stone and revealed the tape lines.)

Did you try goo-gone? If the tiles are stained - in the past I have used chrome metal polish with a orbital sander (like DeWalt D26441) and cloth used as sanding pad - the fine abrasive removes the stain while the sander keeps the mess and effort to a minimum. Try any solution on an unused tile first as color change may result.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Last time I use this Just removed the tape from an edge area I painted and most of the paint underneath it came with it. All the time I took to carefully put the tape in exactly the right place was a complete waste of time. Now I will have to just paint very carefully along the edge. The roll and a half of the tape I have left will now just go into the trash. August 5, 2016
