  • You should not try to remove the goo at this point.
  • Remove the sticker itself as much as possible.

  • Use hot or warm water to remove the rest of the paper.
  • Warning! If the object to be de-gooed is plastic, hot water may warp or melt it.
  • You can use a brush or the scrubbing part of a sponge to help remove the paper.
  • This step is not necessary if the sticker comes off easily.

Step #4: Q-tips!
