Is there an easy way to remove stickers?

I am trying to sell a metal bunk bed. But my daughter put a bunch of stickers all over the steps. Otherwise it's in VERY nice condition so I want to remove the stickers. Any tips? Thanks!

  • Baby oil will disolve the adhesive! Takes a bit of elbo grease but it will work!

  • Goo Gone is amazing! Try to remove as much of the sticker as you can, even if the picture part pulls off and leaves the backing mess....it helps the Goo Gone get to the adhesive faster that way.

  • LOL, Jodi!!! Welcome to my world. My daughter puts stickers on EVERYTHING and it totally drives me NUTS. I really do consider getting a drink and I'm seriously NOT a drinker. LOL.

  • use a blow dryer on them, softens the glue then peel off and use a paint scraper 9plastic one for walls that peel) to get off the rest of the goo
