Removing Sticker Residue from Anywhere
Some stickers out nice and easy, and you never know they were there. Others leave lots of sticky, sticky dirt behind it is difficult to escape. We tried some different household solvents for cleaning the best glue.
We’ve heard a lot of different solutions MacGyver sticker dirt in recent years: the home or lighter fluid due to alcohol Goo Gone dirt. We took five of the most common suggestions and tried alcohol, WD-40, lighter fluid, cooking oil, and Goo went to find what works best. In the video, to see them all in action.
Surprisingly, rubbing alcohol was by far the best we’ve tested. It gets rid of dirt incredibly fast, and dries quickly leaving the smooth, shiny surface. (Other types of alcohol, such as vodka, should work well too.) The lighter fluid is the worst, but hope it will be because Ronsonol a lighter fluid usually recommended, contains more than naphtha solvent that made it so effective (update: this is true, Ronsonol does not contain naphtha, but the wrong kind of lighter fuel, which is the real source of the problem also took). Goo worked well but left an oily residue that is not as good as alcohol.
All but lighter fluid worked well, and if you have the right kind, should continue to function. So if you’re stuck in a dead end one of them should do the trick, but gives you the option we chose alcohol each time.
