I don't know about you, but I find that even “easy peel” stickers have a tendency to leave either the glue or half the sticker behind when you try to remove them! I have picked up a few techniques for removing sticker glue over the years, without needing to buy expensive “goo remover”!
Please be sure to do a spot test before using anything that might harm your item!
- Good ol' fashioned soap and water – If you have a sticker on something that can be washed, you can soak it in a bowl of fairly hot soapy water and it will come off with a little scrubbing with a nail brush or a damp cloth.
- Vodka – the student's answer to cleaning! Just rub it on with a cloth and it will lift the glue off your item.
- WD40 – spray on, leave for a couple of minutes and wipe off!
- Pencil erasers – rub the glue off with a pencil eraser – these can sometimes leave their own irritating marks though, but work well on wood.
Apparently even peanut butter can be used to remove glue! Have you used any strange tricks to remove sticker glue?
