A common question that comes up in zero-waste communities is: how do I remove the sticky residue after removing stickers? 

It depends on what surface the residue is on because some methods may leave behind an oily stain - something you don't have to worry about with plastic or glass but may be a problem if the residue is on drywall.

The top recommendations for removing sticky residue are:

  • Lighter fluid
  • Goo Gone
  • WD-40
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Paint thinner
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Heat up with hair dryer
