Hey everyone,

I know there have been plenty of discussions on this in the past but haven’t been able to find them using the search bar.

What works best at removing the left over sticker residue without stripping clear coat or damaging graphics?

I often use prep wash which I have always found works well but it doesn’t seem to be budging this sticker residue.


Thanks in advance.

Cheers S

Ive heard of several different ways but the only one i've tried and use is goo gone sprayed lightly at 1st to see how it reacts, an old credit card to scrape lightly and a soft cloth to clean up remainder of residue. If graphics are already flaky or old I don't use the old credit card.

Eucalyptus oil can be good if it’s not too stubborn a patch

Goo gone the same but again if it’s too stubborn a patch, it can go pear shaped pretty quickly.

Peanut butter, toothpaste, blah, blah, blah!

There are lots that have worked for some and not for others.

I remember having a really nice wheel welled Lance. One small bit of sticker residue in a prime spot. Tried real hard and got the most of it but could always see a fade. Drove me mad! Let us know how you go... but go slowly!

This! I use it for removing grip tape goo.

I've smudged graphics with Goo Gone.

Thanks boys just been trying to get some crappy stickers off an old Danny Sargent rider of mine

Why remove the stickers some may ask!!! My little brother covered it in stickers when it was left laying around our ramp one afternoon all in a desperate bid to annoy me, 30 odd years later and the little turd has succeeded

Be careful with lighter fluid. I've had it remove graphics.
