How to Remove Sticker Residue From Almost Any Surface
How to Remove Sticker Residue
- Use a blow dryer: For most surfaces, from books to plastics to appliances, a blow dryer on a low heat setting can help. Just direct the air over the sticky surface and use a plastic scraper to dislodge the adhesive gently.
- Use a warm, soapy cloth: For ceramics, dishware, plastics and metals, once you have used a blow dryer and scraper, you can clean any remaining residue with soap and water.
- For sturdy surfaces, you can try more intensive methods: For wood, glass, fabric and plastic without delicate paint, you can usually use vodka, vinegar or rubbing alcohol. Test the substance on a small inconspicuous area to make sure it won’t damage the finish and then soak the adhesive with alcohol or vinegar. Wipe it clean after a few minutes.
- For pots, pans, dishes and plastic goods, try oil: This is best for surfaces where you can easily wipe away or wash away oil. It is effective because oils dissolve adhesive. Just dab mineral oil, baby oil or coconut oil on the adhesive residue and scrape after a minute or two with a plastic scraper. Use a cloth with soap and water to remove the oil.

A Guide to Cleaning Granite Countertops
Today, granite is an incredibly popular material used for kitchen countertops. That’s mainly due to its durability, as it resists bacteria, withstands everyday scratches, and won’t melt or blister when exposed to heat. Additionally, professionals typically apply sealers to granite countertops to block the pores in the natural stone, preventing it from absorbing stain-causing liquids too quickly. However, granite can still soak up spills that are left to stand — like that dip someone forgot to wipe up after the game last night. The daily cleaning of granite countertops also often damages the surface over time, particularly when the wrong products are used. Certain chemicals will wear away the sealer, causing the need for re-sealing long before the recommended time. Therefore, it’s important to know how to clean sealed granite to allow its protective sealant to last and keep your counter looking beautiful for longer.
