    Question Sticky stuff remover?

    I know you can buy this special liquid for removing sticky stuff where labels have been, [so annoying!] but before I next go into town, does anyone have any alternative solutions? There must be 'an old wifey's' method that was used before modern chemicals??? Its actually sticky stuff from parcel tape that I want to remove from pine.
    Thanks.

    rub some vegetable oil over the label and leave it for a while to soak in,then the label should just slide off along with any sticky residue x

    Default Sticky stuff remover?

    You may have this sorted by now but I have used nail varnish remover or
    surgical spirit - but take care on what surface you use it on because it can react with plastics. I also use baby wet wipes and they work a treat! hope you have got your self out of a sticky situation!! lol

    Cheers

    Hi guys would any of these be any good for removing the sticky back from a border?
    Decorating and when border was removed left a glue type sticky stuff and near impossible to come off.

    Hi there Biker5 is the sticky left on a painted wall? if so I would try the wet wipes - it is amazing what they do - they have removed biro/felt pen stains from any surface and are great at removing sticky stuff from everything I have ever tried. Good luck if I think of anything else I will let you know. Cheers

    Hi again Biker5 the only other thing I can think of is warm soapy water and a lot of elbow grease - good luck
