    Help a sticky mess

    Advertisements
    UGH! I have been on an EXTREME cleaning binge today, which is (surprisingly) my first serious cleaning binge since I moved in. But what I discovered in one of the guest bedrooms really aggrivates me!
    The people who lived here before apparantly had kids who were obsessed with stickers...lots and lots of stickers. They are ALL OVER the windows and walls in one bedroom, and I cannot get them off for anything! The ones that do come off leave that nasty sticky, white residue behind that is pretty much impossible to get off.
    So my question is....do any of you lovely ladies have any ideas of getting that crap off windows and walls? I know stuff like goo-gone works, but I really don't want to have to go waste money on that stuff just yet. So does anyone have any home-remedies that work?

    Try spraying Windex or WD-40 and scrapping it off with a plastic scrapper.

    I just used Windex to get stickers off my glass table today. Of course, they weren't on there for months or years...



    Let the Windex or WD-40 soak on the sticky residue or stickers for a few minutes before trying to scrap off.

    Also, instead of a scrapper, try a Magic Eraser.
