removing sticky residue from screen
|Subject: removing sticky residue from screen Wed Aug 20, 2014 3:39 pm|| |
I want to remove this label from my screen, but it is going to leave a load of sticky residue, anyone got any ideas how I can get the residue off without scratching the screen, any ideas will be gratefully accepted

Hi Andy, there is a previous post on this subject and the consensus is to heat the sticker with a hair dryer to loosen the adhesive then roll with your thumb gently picking as necessary.. I always use WD 40 to remove the sticky residue and it works fine. Others use petrol which seems to be quicker.
Search the forum for Stickers ( how to remove them )

Petrol will remove all sticky residue.

Good advice from last 2 posts, hair dryer and then either wd40 or petrol to clean off glue

Ronsons Lighter Fluid - cheaper than Zippo lighter fluid. It's a solvent so it dissolves the adhesive

I always use a a hair dryer first and if there is any glue residue left I soak it with wd40 for ten minutes & wipe off. Never let me down yet from probably hundreds of tries.
