Household Hack: Unstick Stubborn Stickers

Kids are notorious for sticking stickers anywhere and everywhere. This hack, courtesy of my Aunt, helps lift those stubborn stickers and that sticky residue they leave behind when they just won’t budge!

Start by scraping as much of the sticker off as possible (soak it in water and use a bank card if your fingers just won’t do). If it still wont budge then simply grab some good tape (preferably masking or heavy duty) place it on top of the sticker and give it a rub to ensure it’s on firmly. Then just rip it off and repeat until the sticker has gone! It shouldn’t take too long and I wouldn’t recommend using this hack on surfaces that can peel (e.g. painted surfaces). I use this hack all of the time (on the pram, the washing machine, the floors, on toys) because my son loves those freebie stickers in his CBeebies magazines.

Top tip: this hack also works around the house too! Like when you forget to take the sticker off the bottom of your mugs and bowls before you wash them and you’re left with that gunky sticker outline underneath.
