The Scariest Sticker Situations: How to Remove Sticker Residue
Most kids love stickers. Not only are they used in school or at the doctor’s office as a reward, but stickers offer a great way for kids to use their hands and explore their creativity. Plain and simple, stickers are fun. If you have children who adore stickers, chances are they’ve probably stuck one or two stickers — or 50 — on some places they don’t belong. A slew of Sesame Street stickers might look great on a school folder, but they don’t look quite as appealing on your sleek LED TV, bathroom wallpaper or kitchen cabinets. If only Bert and Ernie could give a Ted Talk on how to remove stickers. Or better yet, on how to get sticker residue off your glassware and dinner plates. Getting a sticker off a surface can be tough but dealing with sticker residue can leave you feeling like a grouch. That’s where Goo Gone comes in.
How to Remove Sticker Residue on Vertical Surfaces
Goo Gone Goo & Adhesive Remover Spray Gel is a simple solution to help you remove sticker residue. It’s the perfect tool for removing stickers and sticker residue from walls or vertical surfaces because it clings to the sticky messes without sliding over the mess. And it still protects the surface underneath. Here’s how:
- Spray Goo Gone onto sticker or sticker residue
- Let it sit for 1-3 minutes to break down adhesive
- Wash with hot, ambient water
Feel free to use a putty knife, plastic scraper, or your fingernail to peel of the sticker and remove the adhesive, but it depends on the surface. You won’t want to use a putty knife on a computer screen or fragile surface, but you can on glass, refrigerators and other non-porous, hard surfaces. Extra gooey sticker residue might require you to leave the Goo Gone Spray Gel on the problem area for 5-10 minutes before you wipe away. Repeat as needed, and your sticker residue will be a thing of the past.

How to Get Your Car Back Clean

How to Get Stickers Off of Carpets or Clothes
