Trying to remove a sticker from painted wood furniture can become a frustrating experience. Even if you do manage to scratch away the sticker without damaging the paint, you're often left with the sticky remnants of the adhesive. Instead of using force to remove an offending sticker, you can soften and break down the sticker so that it slides right off of the wood. While this makes removing the sticker easier, it still might take several attempts to successfully remove it from your painted wood surface.
Things You'll Need
- Vegetable oil
- Plastic scraper
Dampen a rag with olive, canola or vegetable oil.
Gently rub the sticker with the damp rag to saturate the sticker.
Wait approximately five minutes to give the oil time to loosen the sticker's adhesive.
Peel one corner of the sticker up gently with your fingernail or a plastic scraper to remove it from the wood.
Repeat the steps as necessary to remove all traces of the sticker from the painted wood.
