Gentle heat is what is needed to remove a sticker from artwork. Simply aim a blow dryer at the sticker to loosen the adhesive on the back of the sticker, then carefully use the edge of a razor blade to get underneath it to peel it off.
Nail Polish Remover
Nail Polish Remover works well for getting stickers off of picture frames (do not use on actual artwork however – just frames). Simply saturate a cotton ball with nail polish remover and rub it on the sticker until the adhesive loosens enough to remove it.
Cooking Oil also works well for removing stickers from frames. Simply rub enough oil on the sticker to saturate it, let it sit for a few minutes and scrape it off. The cooking oil helps dissolve the gum in the adhesive.
For stickers that are stuck to glass, a little WD-40 will do the trick. Simply saturate the sticker with WD-40, let is sit for a few minutes as it eats away at the adhesive then scrape it clean.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
For sticker or adhesive residue left behind by a sticker, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is just the thing. Simply dampen a small piece of the eraser and rub off the glue.
Nivea Face Cream
Face creams such as Nivea Face Cream can also remove sticker residue from metals, glass, and even most plastics – even if the glue is dry. Rub a decent amount of face cream on the residue – wait a few minutes then simply wipe clean.
