Some people love an adhesive remover for removing stickers. This works well but sometimes leaves an oily residue on the item.
An easy way to remove price tags from most any item is to heat it for several seconds with a hairdryer. The glue on the back of the sticker will get hot, and most of the time the sticker will peel right off in one piece. Make sure your item is not plastic, because the heat might melt the plastic.
This is good to know when you need to remove the price tags from items like picture frames and glassware or if you need to remove multiple stickers. If your child has applied stickers on furniture or mirrors, this will work also.
Trust me, when you are wrapping your pile of gifts, you will be happy to use this tip and to be able to remove stickers easily.

Another one of those things that seem so simple but I would have never thought of! I have struggled with the stickers forever, they leave behind a residue that collects dust and I dislike it intensely! Thanks for sharing your brilliant lightbulb moment, I will be roaming around my house with a hairdryer and an extension cord! LOL I bet my family will think I’ve lost it!!! Again. LOL
