    Posted: Aug/01/2009 at 8:44am
so half way through the season i put like 40 stickers on my board and the end result looked like poop. So i wanted to take them off. i found out that if you take the bindings off and put half a bottle of goo-gone on the tops of all your stickers and wait 30min. then scrape it away with a plastic scraper (NEVER A BLADE OF ANY KIND) it takes them all off and it even laves the top sheet looking brand-new.

Thanks for the info i have always had a hard time getting stickers off. I tried goo gone once but i didnt leave it on long enough so it good to know to leave it on longer. Thanks

chemicals like goo gone don't hurt the topsheet?

Using a heatgun works wonders too, but you still have to use goo gone to scrape the glue off. But less chemicals in the air.

hairdryers can make a mess though, leaving some of the glue behind.

Oh and any tips on taking stickers off a board with matte and gloss topsheet graphics without possibly scraping off the matte?

Really, any organic solvent will work great for taking off adhesives.  That's really all goo-gone is.  So if you have access to a lab, then bring home a bottle of acetone.  Nailpolish, which is a mix of acetone with a few other things, works fairly well too.

Goo Gone with plastic razor blades.  Then use an all purpose cleaner to clean off the goo gone residue.

plastic razor blades can be found here

Do you mean nailpolish remover?
 
Another method is to try tea tree oil. 
 
Also spray some detergent and a little bit of water on cling wrap and cover the sticker with cling wrap for a few minutes, when you pull the cling wrap off the sticker should come with it.
 
If you use the goo gone or WD40 - some people say its more effective with cling wrap over the top as well.

Yeah I just put some on my RC and it also looked like poop, so I peeled them off and was left with some sticky stuff and some sticker fragments. I, unfortunately tried the razor technique and nicked my topsheet (I covered it with a more attractive sticker though). I didnt have any googone, so I used some WD-40 and a paper towel. That worked great, but its hard to wipe all the grease off afterwards.

I remove sticker using isopro alcohol. It works wonders on all surfaces and it wont harm any surface. I would be aware of googone and wd-40 on plastic surfaces. I just pour some alcohol on some paper towel and just scrub until the sticker is all gone, pretty easy.

if you use a hairdryer warm the sticker up first and pull really slowly if you do it right it shouldn't leave any residue.
