Help! Store price stickers

Post  jsesere on Sat Aug 13, 2016 1:17 am

Anyone had any luck getting store price stickers off of Cox plastic boxes? I tried Goof Off and lighter fluid on plastics in the past and it melted or hazed the surface so that's a no go.

I have used sunflower oil on glass and plastic items. Other food oils may also work. Cover the sticker with oil (as thick a layer you can) and leave overnight. Then wipe the oil off. The paper should detach by itself and the glue should rub off easily with your thumb. This method may not work on all stickers but I have had good luck with it, and it will not damage the plastic.

I agree, oil works well. I use silicone oil.

I use "Superzilla" . One of the few American products easily available in the UK. Watch the videos - "In your face" advertising but I have used it for many things - including removing paint from my hands, red wine stains, penetrating oil and sticky label removing.

My opinion: a well placed price sticker does not reduce the value of the item, but brings context which has value.

That sticker is not well placed.

Rubbing alcohol works well in many cases.

There is a product called "label-off" that works well. Otherwise just leave the sticker on...

Yes, some store stickers add a bit of charm. Those that don't I use Remoil and patience. Resist the urge to use fine steel wool or any abrasive. BTW Remoil works great. Goo gone etc. never worked for me on anything.

Ronson Lighter fluid should do it too. I had a tape glue problem on top of fairly new clear dope and that did the trick for me. No damage at all to the clear coat.

Lighter fluid hazed the test piece I tried in the past. It's basically what Goo Off is made of.

"Label-off" is mainly isopropanol I think for the active part, plus some lemon freshener and perhaps some thin oil in order to not leave a completely dry surface.

If you have access to isopropanol you can try that, ethanol might work too, I haven't tried it though.
