My dad taught me a neat trick and I am so impressed with it I just have to share.
Have you ever bought something with an annoying price tag that you can’t peel off? Maybe you peel off the top layer and the sticky backing stays behind? It happens to me a lot, and I’m left picking at the remnants or looking for nail polish remover to clean up the mess.
The remedy? A hair dryer!
My parents and I were at the Habitat for Humanity store a few weeks ago and they picked up some neat artwork. The sticker was smack dab on the front of one of the paintings. My dad pointed the dryer at the sticker and slowly peeled it back. It came off clean with not sticky residue left behind.
Carmen’s note: It works on many surfaces: glass, wood, metal, plastic, cardboard and even paper. Sometimes peeling the sticker off a surface can damage the item, depending on what it is (like a book or picture), this trick doesn’t do damage if the material can handle a bit of heat.
Remember to peel gently and slowly, and with caution!
Give it a try and let us know!
