How to Remove Stickers From Your Gadgets

‘Tis the season for new electronic gadgets, which means it's also the season for removing feisty stickers. It’s best to remove any factory stickers or labels as soon as possible if you think you're ever going to take them off, as they tend to dry up and over time can become a permanent part of any electronic device.

For geeksugar’s tips on removing nasty stickers, just

  • 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. Chances are there is still some sticky substance remaining, so rubbing the area with your finger will help turn the sticky stuff into a dirty residue you can rub off. Geek Tip Make sure to use tools that won’t damage your gadget (your hand works best!) and run an eraser to remove any remaining residue.
