Sticker and Decal Residue & Spots
Stickers are big business. Wildly popular with kids and teens; they can be used to jazz up just about anything, from notebooks to refrigerators to computers – any hard surface at all. Stickers are an easy and inexpensive way to personalize your possessions, and give them a fun modern look. Craft stores have aisles of them, not to mention the thousands of designs available online.
Decals can be custom made to dynamically and cost-effectively market various types of businesses, as well as for fundraising and promoting causes. Bumper stickers can do the same or they’re a great way to tell the world who you are and what you believe in. (Of course, we can regret this in later years when our tastes or political positions change).
Other types of stickers include: license plate registration month and year stickers; window decals for parking vehicle inspection, parks’ passes, etc. ; price and product information affixed to your purchase, and many other kinds of labels and decals.
But, what happens when you need to remove stickers, and the glue, adhesive or residue they leave behind?
Perhaps you are selling your car, and need to get off that radical left wing bumper sticker. Maybe you just bought a great second-hand wooden desk, covered with stickers, and you want to refinish it. Maybe your kid put stickers all over the side of your new refrigerator or wood cabinets. There are many reasons you might need a product that removes all these and more.
How to Remove Stickers, and the Sticky Stuff they Leave Behind
The brave among you have been known to try to do it with a razor blade… or boiling water… but there is an easier and safer way - one without risk of damaging your valuable possessions.
First, remove the label as best you can. Second, saturate the sticker with the handy spray nozzle of Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover and Degreaser, and wait a few moments. Goof Off®’s powerful micro-emulsion formula is designed to penetrate and dissolve adhesive. Once it is dissolved, the sticker will lift right off, and any remaining adhesive residue will wipe away with it.
Goof Off® is formulated to be safe and effective on a wide variety of surfaces; but please read the directions carefully before applying. For more information, visit our How To Remove Decals page and our Glue Removal page. Goof Off® is The Miracle Remover for all your household and work area problem spots and stains. Keep a bottle on hand for all your tough cleaning challenges.
TIP: For really tough stickers and decal residue, use Goof Off® Professional Strength.
