Removing Sticky Residue

To remove sticky residue left after removal of a sticker on a product, rub some vegetable oil on the spot, let it sit for an hour, and then wash with hot soapy water. There's no need to buy expensive removers like GOO Be Gone.

Removing Sticker Goo

If the sticker was on something that you don't want to use oil on try putting in the freezer, in fact....put into the freezer before peeling the sticker..let it freeze completely, peel off. (07/27/2004)

To remove leftover sticky stuff from stickers, simple use a little babyoil.

Rubbing alcohol also works for removing adhesive residue, in case you don't wish to use oil on a particular object. (07/12/2005)

That is a great idea. I must say that Goo Gone is not expensive considering a little goes such a very long way. Sometimes paying for something that lasts and lasts is a real value also.


By the way, the product also works great if you happen to have a little person who has gum in their hair! (07/12/2005)

Thanks so much for the tip. I have some containers that came with chicken salad or potato salad in them originally. I love to use them for storing leftovers in, however, I have never been able to completely get the stickers and the sticky off. You can bet I will be trying this one out. Thanks again. (07/17/2005)

That works great! Santa brought us a new Power Wheels car with a HUGE sticker on the front windshield and your solution worked like a charm. Thanks a bunch.

I sometimes use a squirt of aerosol hairspray, deodorant or fly spray. Leave for a minute or two and viola the sticky stuff comes right off. You could also try some eucalyptus oil if you have any. (12/09/2006)

For some reason, Axe deodorant works perfectly. Just spray on the affected sticker gunked area and let it sit for 10 seconds. Then wipe around and wait. Works nicely. (12/15/2006)

Removing Sticker Residue of a delicate shoe

I Use hair spray or Tinacin(foot & sneaker deodorant). After the sticker is out and leaves some residue, put some oil (I used anti frizz oil - for hair) and scrub with your finger nail. (12/28/2006)

Removing Sticker Residue

I removed a "caution, hot surface" sticker that was meant to stay on the top of my new stainless steel toaster oven for its lifespan. I tried most of the things I found on this site, but for this stubborn residue that was designed to endure heat, I used peppermint oil (didn't have eucalyptus). Seeing that this left a strange haze, I put hot water on a rag to remove any traces of peppermint oil, wiped the surface dry and then polished it w/ Noxon metal cleaner. (01/01/2007)

Pam or any non stick cooking spray works instantly at getting off sticky residue! (01/23/2007)

Removing Sticker Residue

I just used nail polish remover. There was glue residue from the high chair pad that collected food. I cleaned as much off as I could with warm soapy water and high pressure garden hose. Then I rubbed what was left with nail polish remover. Worked like a charm.(quote)(/quote) (03/22/2007)
