Stainless steel is a popular material found all over the home. Many people have stainless steel sinks, cookware and appliances. Occasionally, new stainless steel items come packaged with a label or sticker. These stickers can leave behind a mess that might seem nearly impossible to remove. The good news is sticker glue residue is easily removed from stainless steel using products you probably already have at home.

Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Step 1

Spray some non-stick cooking spray directly onto the sticker glue residue. Apply generously and be sure to cover all of the glue.

Step 2

Use dry paper towels to rub the glue until it's completely removed.

Step 3

Wash the area using soap, water and a sponge to remove the non-stick spray and any remaining glue residue.

Nail Polish Remover

Step 1

Dampen a paper towel with acetone nail polish remover. You might want to wear rubber gloves to protect your own nails if you're wearing nail polish.

Step 2

Rub the sticker with the paper towel vigorously until the glue residue is removed.

Step 3

Wash the area thoroughly using soap, water and a sponge to ensure that no acetone residue remains.
