Things You'll Need
Butter knife or credit card
Stickers often leave behind a tacky residue when they are removed, much like a bandage leaves adhesive on your skin. The method you should use for removing sticker residue depends on the surface. Adhesive can be removed from leather with ordinary household items.
Scrape off sticker residue by using gentle, short strokes with a butter knife or the edge of a credit card.
Moisten a cotton ball with a few drops of baby oil.
Rub the residue with the cotton ball, using small, circular motions. Continue this until you have loosened the adhesive residue.
Wipe the area with a cloth moistened with white vinegar. This will remove the baby oil and tape residue.
Dry the area with a soft, lint-free cloth.
