A tip from your ol’ buddy Wirecutter

Hair spray is the ticket. If you have a really tough label, spray it down first, then use a hair dryer as you pull it up.
Works on old bumper stickers too.
You’re welcome.

    A 30 year old can of roofing cement or tar, whatever you want to call it, it’s still gooey and sticks even when wet. Rubber gloves and split cedar to daub it with, I still got that goop everywhere it doesn’t belong. Last time I used gasoline to get it off my skin. This time looking for acetone, I found a bottle of “Goof Off” under the kitchen sink. It worked really slick, one paper towel and it’s gone. Smells like oranges.

    Try charcoal lighter fluid. Dab some on a quetip and dampen the label……will come right off.

    Aerosol or pump spray for the hairspray? I assume it doesn’t matter given the suggestions for lighter fluid (which you would pour on) and Goo Gone.
