Tired of that bumper sticker on the rear bumper of your
car or truck? Automotive expert Trisha Hessinger tells you the best
way to remove a sticker without damaging your paint or chrome.
Begin by softening the sticker's adhesive using a hair-dryer.
After the adhesive has begun to soften, spray a light spray-lubricant
over the surface of the sticker. After the lubricant has soaked
in for a few minutes, you should be able to begin peeling back the
sticker (figure A). Peel slowly and carefully.
If you have to do any scraping to remove adhesive or sticker residue,
use a plastic spatula or similar tool. Avoid using any sort of metal
scraper or blade as this could scratch damage the paint or the bumper.
If any adhesive remains after the sticker has been removed, follow
up by wiping the area well with ordinary rubbing alcohol and a clean
cloth to help dissolve and remove the adhesive.
One of the chief obstacles to a finishing touch for an installation
is the easy-peel sticker - the list features plastered to the oven
door, or the cleaning instructions on the light fixture lens. Often
the paper comes off, leaving rubbery adhesive behind, looking terrible.
To save customer aggravation, firmly press a piece of duct tape
onto the stickum, and peel it off. The adhesive usually comes off
with the duct tape, leaving a spotless installation.
Removing Sticky Adhesive
Q When I removed a large
sticker from my new refrigerator, a lot of the adhesive remained.
It's very sticky, and I can't get it off. Do you have any suggestions?
A Before using anything on
the surface of your refrigerator, read the manufacturer's instructions
and warranty, or visit the company's Website. Chemicals in nail-polish
remover, cleansers and ammonia could scratch or discolor the surface,
and the warranty may not cover this kind of damage. Instead, use
baby oil or mineral oil, a petroleum-based prewash spray or a lubricating
spray. With a soft cloth, apply just enough solution to saturate
the sticky area. Let it soak in, then gently rub with a plastic
scrubbie to remove the residue.
Is that sticky residue from an adhesive label resisting
all your efforts for removal? Let WD-40 do the work for you.
Time Required: 15 minutes
1. Spray WD-40 directly on the residue if possible, or dab on with
2. Let sit for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until softened.
3. Wipe off with a cloth.
4. If some residue remains, repeat.
5. Clean with a damp cloth; buff dry.
