One of the simplest solutions for removing sticky glue is rubbing alcohol. Apply it to the sticker area and let it sit for a few minutes, and you should be able to peel the stickiness away. This method can work even on cardboard.
Mineral oil is a gentle way to remove stickers and tape. Apply and leave on for about 30 minutes, and the mess should wipe away.
Petroleum jelly, better known by the brand name Vaseline, can also be applied to help remove the sticker. Wash the surface with soap and water when you are done to remove any residue.
A thick paste of baking soda and water is a wonderful household cleanser. Rub it into the sticky glue and then remove with a damp washcloth.
Vinegar can remove sticky spots from your items, although it will need to soak longer than some of the other solutions. Leaving it on overnight is the best option.
