‘Tis the season for new electronic gadgets, which means it's also the season for removing feisty stickers.

  • Decide which stickers you want off your gadget.
  • Slowly pull the sticker from the edges, using your fingers, fingernails or tweezers. The idea here is that you want to pull the entire sticker off in one piece.
  • Slowly grab onto the edge that you have just propped up and pull the sticker off.
  • Take your finger and rub over where the sticker used to be.
