Hair drying by sticker on board

Hair dryer helps remove stickers

Adhesive-backed bar-coded stickers on lumber may speed up the checkout process, but it's tough to remove them later. I've tried scraping, sanding, and using solvent, but nothing worked very well until I tried a hair dryer. The hot air softens the adhesive, and the sticker usually peels off in one piece.

Also works great for removing scroll saw patterns from your finished work. I use a heat gun instead of a hair dryer, it does get quite hot so you need to be careful not to burn yourself.

Be careful of moving decals from a car, you may peal the car paint if it's too hot.

THANK YOU! I HATE when stores put these things on an otherwise perfectly good piece of plywood.

This also works to remove unwanted symbols, badges, decals etc on the back and sides of your car.
