Default Removing Stickers.....

Thought I'd share my latest Innovation.... been removing some stickers from my lorry today... Always have an issue removing the sticky residue.

Steal some Cif from the kitchen and coat where the sticker was... leave for a minute or so and partly dry it with a heat gun. Then Buff it out.

Works surprisingly well!

That'll take the paint with it!

Petrol is better than any degreaser for removing the sticky residue.

It's a really soft rubber wheel Doob, I've used them in the past to remove decals from car paintwork, with no damage to the paint, if you keep an eye on temperature, they work well when needed, but as said, wear very quickly and wouldn't be cost effective for large areas on plant, trucks ect

Petrol or brake cleaner work OK to remove the adhesive , doling water will actually get some stickers off

Ah, I thought he meant the old scourer pad jobby!

Petrol will shift glues that brake cleaner won't in my experience.
