removing paper label

grama2September 26, 2011

Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove a sticking paper label off of wood. My daughter is expecting her first baby next month. Her husband put together the crib and on the main railing which can later be used as the headboard for a toddler bed, is a stubborn stuck label that they are trying to remove without scratching the wood. They do not want to try and use warm water as of course the do not want any water mark damage. I can not understand why the manufacturer would place a label on a part of the crib that shows and not on the back side instead. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

First heat the label for a minute or so with a hair dryer. This will soften (plasticize) the adhesive. Then gently peel it off. Keep applying heat if necessary.

If there is any residue, remove it with Goo-Gone (not Goof-off) and a soft rag. Give the Goo-Gone time to work and save yourself a lot of rubbing.
