Removing Stickers and Tags

There is an oil-based remover out to use on residue left from tape, price tags, etc., but often this ruins the item, especially if it's a book or paper-derived product.


If you can get part of the tag/tape off, just keep dabbing that piece over the area and I promise you it will remove the residue in a short time. This also works on glass and saves having to wipe the oily product off of everything it touches.

When attempting to remove those difficult labels and price tags from a newly purchased item, try lighter fluid. It will penetrate the label and dissolve the adhesive, without causing any damage to the product.

I have also heard that using peanut butter or another oily substance will do the trick. Worth a try and not likely to do any damage. Isn't this an annoying problem! Why haven't they invented a better adhesive that won't create 'the agony of removal'. (04/27/2005)
