Removing stickers can be really challenging because of the adhesive residue they leave behind when you pull them. This is why you need to follow certain tips and tricks when removing stickers so it can turn into an easy process. No one wants to waste a few hours scraping and tugging on sticker residue, right? Well, this is exactly why I am going to show you how I deal with stickers and adhesive residue!
Use Your Hairdryer!
Yes, your hairdryer is a great tool to use whenever you want to remove sticker residue. Heat up the residue then scrape it off with a plastic knife, for example.
Use Rubbing Alcohol!
The easiest way to remove sticker residue is by using rubbing alcohol or vodka. This is my favourite method to use and I highly recommend you give it a try!
Also, rubbing alcohol is safe to be used on every surface so even if you want to remove sticker residue from granite or marble countertops, you don’t have to worry about potential damage because rubbing alcohol is 100% safe!
Dampen a cloth or a paper towel in the liquid and start rubbing the sticker. If you are having a hard time removing the residue then leave the paper towel over the area for a few minutes so that the residue can soak in the alcohol.
Another thing you can use to remove sticker residue is vinegar, however, be careful with this one because some surfaces can be damaged by vinegar – like natural stones, marble, granite, etc.
This hack is ideal for wooden furniture and glass. Soak a paper towel or a cloth in vinegar and place it over the affected area. Let it soak for a few minutes then start wiping.
I do not recommend using vinegar if you do not like the smell. For example, I hate vinegar which is why I avoid using it when cleaning. Instead, go for the rubbing alcohol!
