Does anyone know the best way to remove the logo placard from an item like this:
I want to remove it (dissolve the glue I guess) without harming the actual object.
Would oiling be OK for the board? If so, vegetable or olive oil might help remove the glue residue.
I can't imagine oil wouldn't be ok... I'll try that.
I am assuming that it is a plasticized paper label that leaves residue & paper when gently peeled off. I usually use GooGone to remove it, but that has petroleum distilates which are toxic. I performed and experiment after reading Outdoor Girl's post.
I have a plastic tumbler with sticky stuff from a label on it, so instead of GooGone, I used mineral oil on a paper towel and it pretty much just wiped the goo right off! That's what I use to treat my cutting boards, and it is used as a laxative. I bought it in the laxative section of the pharmacy. By the way: ignore the expiration date for this purpose. That stuff doesn't go bad. Miner is over 12 years old.
Thank you Willy-Nilly, for your 'stupid question', and thank you Outdoor Girl for your suggestion.
