How to Remove Stickers Off Refrigerators

Quick tip for refrigerator art: Decorate with magnets instead of stickers. Those cute stickers with adhesive backing look great until you try to get them off. Then you're left with a sticky residue that isn't so attractive. The good news is you can remove the stuff fairly easily with an oil-based liquid.

Step 1

Remove as much of the sticker as you can -- you probably won't be able to get off all the backing. No matter what product you use to remove the sticky residue, rub it on the spot with a cloth or paper towel. Let it sit a few minutes, and clean it with a sponge or scrubber and soapy water. Wipe down with clean water and spray with glass cleaner if desired. Dry it, and you're done.

Step 2

Use something you already have in the house to remove the residue from a sticker. Vegetable oil, mineral oil and baby oil all work. A nice-smelling alternative is eucalyptus oil, which you can also use for other household cleaning tasks (see Resources below).

Step 3

Use a natural cleaner such as Goo Gone. It's also great for removing other "accidents," from chewing gum to crayon marks.
