⚉ How to Get Sticker Marks Off of Any Surface ⚉

✍ Time to Clean those Marks ✍

We love our Stickers but we also get a new anime or movie every week! So usually change our stickers a lot and when we do we get an awful glue mark under it. Which is almost impossible to remove.

So here are a few tips on how to take those marks off using supplies—which you probably already have around the house— to remove sticker residue from any surface.

The residue left behind after removing an adhesive-back sticker or label from a surface may be sticky, gooey glue. And occasionally, getting rid of it might be downright difficult. It's not hard to figure out how to remove sticker residue, but resist the urge to scrape the area with a putty knife or metal blade.

The surface beneath the gunk may be scratched by this cleaning equipment. Instead, apply the advice in this article to learn how to gently soften and remove sticker residue from surfaces including glass, plastic, wood, and even clothing.

Try to remove as much of the sticker residue with your fingers before you start. You may easily remove the sticky adhesive by rolling it into balls with your fingertips.

Do not wash or dry the item of clothing if there is tape residue on it before the stickiness has disappeared. If the stain has gone through the drying cycle, it will be more difficult to remove.

Use one of the following techniques to get rid of any sticker residue that is left after you've removed as much as you can by hand. One word of advice: Before using any of these techniques, test the surface in a hidden location to ensure that it won't discolor or harm the surface in any other way.

✦ 𝟚: ℙ𝕝𝕒𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕔 ℂ𝕒𝕣𝕕/𝕊𝕔𝕣𝕒𝕡 

The edge of an old gift card or the blade of a plastic knife can be used safely to scrape the adhesive from many surfaces without harming them, however, metal blades might damage the surface you're attempting to save.

Other methods include scraping the area with a rubber eraser to remove the particles or wiping the area with the scratchy side of a sponge. This is effective in removing sticker residue from plastic, but if you're not careful, it could scratch glass.

✦ 𝟛: 𝕎𝕒𝕣𝕞/ℍ𝕠𝕥 𝕎𝕒𝕥𝕖𝕣 

If possible, place the object in a sink or other container filled with hot water with a few drops of dish detergent, and let it soak there until the residue dissolves. Use a plastic scraper or your fingers to remove the muck.

Sticker residue cannot be removed with hot water as effectively as with cold water.

✦ 𝟜: ℍ𝕒𝕚𝕣𝕕𝕣𝕪𝕖𝕣 

Your bathroom contains one of the greatest instruments for removing sticker residue. Turn on a hair dryer, point it at the sticker residue, and let the hot air break up the adhesive. Remove with a scrape.

✦ 𝟝: 𝔸𝕝𝕔𝕠𝕙𝕠𝕝 

Rubbish alcohol is a powerful solvent that is secure for most surfaces and can be used to remove sticker residue from plastic, wood, and glass.

An excellent replacement is a vodka. Rub the residue with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel or a clean rag to remove it.

Stickers that are particularly difficult to remove can be softened by applying an area with an alcohol-soaked rag and letting it sit for a while. Rub away the residue with the rag.

✦ 𝟞: 𝔸𝕝𝕞𝕠𝕟𝕕 𝔹𝕦𝕥𝕥𝕖𝕣/ℙ𝕖𝕒𝕟𝕦𝕥 𝔹𝕦𝕥𝕥𝕖𝕣 

Apply a small amount of peanut butter to the area and wait until the sticker residue starts to dissolve if you want to remove sticker residue from wood, glass, or plastic.

Lift the peanut butter and the residue off with a clean towel.

✦ 𝟟: 𝕃𝕦𝕓𝕣𝕚𝕔𝕒𝕟𝕥 𝕊𝕡𝕣𝕒𝕪 ✦

One of the many uses for the lubricant spray WD-40 around the house is to eliminate sticker residue.

Spray the solution onto the sticker location, then wait a few minutes before peeling off. After that, wipe the leftovers away using a rag.

✦ 𝟠: 𝕆𝕝𝕚𝕧𝕖 𝕆𝕚𝕝 𝕠𝕣 ℂ𝕒𝕟𝕠𝕝𝕒 𝕆𝕚𝕝 ✦

Cooking oil can be used to liquefy sticker residue.

Use your fingers, a plastic knife, or a plastic scraper to remove the remaining material. Another option is to rub the area with a fresh rag.

Simply wipe away the extra oil after the sticker residue has been eliminated.

✦ 𝟡: 𝕎𝕙𝕚𝕥𝕖 𝕍𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕘𝕒𝕣, 𝔻𝕚𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕝𝕝𝕖𝕕 ✦

You may save money by learning how to remove sticker residue using common household materials. Lay a rag or paper towel across the sticky area after soaking it in vinegar.

After letting the residue soften for a few minutes, wipe or scrape the residue off. Additionally, vinegar can be used to clean your entire house.

Erasers are helpful for more than just stray pencil marks. For most surfaces, a rubber eraser will work just as well to remove sticker residue. The residue will be rolled away by the rubber surface.

There are a few commercial treatments designed to remove sticker residue. As long as you adhere to the manufacturer's instructions, the product is often applied to the residue, let to sit, and then scraped off or removed with a rag.

Those are a few ways how to remove sticker residue from most surfaces. You can try them but be always careful about where you use them and try not to damage any surface!
