Heat it up and gently pull it before the adhesive cools.

Yep, Greg is right.

Just heat it up while gently pulling on a corner of it and it will peelright off. Be careful though, if you get the foam too hot the beads will first start to expand and then it will melt! If you peel it off while slowly pulling on it you can remove it with the minimum amount of heat necessary.

Good luck!
