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.
