Helpful Hints from joeeze: My favorite label/sticker residue remover


If you're anything like me, too bad for you (kidding).

Take two: If you're anything like me, you're irritated beyond measure by the stubborn residue left behind by adhesive labels or stickers on almost everything you buy.

Sometimes there are two, three, or more, each one applied using a more tenacious, non-water-soluble adhesive than the last.

I've tried and discarded innumerable all-purpose removers over the decades including that old standby, nail polish remover, so I decided to have a throwdown between my two old dependables: GooGone and OOPS!

The winner — quickly removing paper and glue from a red plastic-covered lead-core bat weight without any dye coming off — was OOPS!

Besides working much better, OOPS! employs a superior dispenser with a pinhole opening as opposed to GooGone's open bottle whose contents are difficult to keep on a paper towel.

Caution: When you use either of these substances, try to do so outdoors — the active ingredients are so strong you can practically feel your brain dissolving with every breath you take.
