    You know when you peel a lable off of a container and it leaves that tacky residue? Anyone know of a solvent that would remove that? It seems that hot water and a brillo pad just doesnt do the trick.

    any info appriciated.
    thanks!

    *EDIT: Disregard. I've discovered "Goof-Off".

    Isopropalnol (rubbing alchohol) works great!

    Goo gone works great.

    Lighter fluid is another old time trick that the toy guys use to get the stickers off old toy packages that works great too without damaging the surface of the item, just don't smoke or make a spark around it while doing it.
