I’ve been working on streamlining my Amazon product work flow… and removing stickers is one of those things that will drive you nuts.
All the stuff I get from the thrift stores and many of the big box retail stores have very sticky stickers and lot’s of tape which all needs to be removed before sending it in to the Amazon FBA warehouse.
Most of the products I buy on clearance (and at stores like Big Lot’s) has multiple stickers and they are stuck on tight.
Nothing makes this job super fast… it’s just a fact that you have to do it and it’s going to take a bit of labor.
I use Bestine on anything with a light plastic feel to it as well… for instance, vacuum cleaner bags come in 3 packs (or more) and the flimsy bag that holds these will not stand up to much rubbing or oily chemicals. Bestine (or lighter fluid) is not oily and does a great job of removing stickers without much effort.
You do need patience as it doesn’t work FAST.
Goo Gone is one product I’m never without. It’s the best for removing most stickers. I have learned that a little goes a long way… so instead of soaking the sticker with massive amounts of this oily solvent, I now use a tiny bit applied with a Q-tip.
A heat gun is your friend when it comes to sticker removal. A bit of heat and a Scotty Peeler will remove a good portion of stickers without any solvent at all.
One of the very best tools for sticker removal is the Scotty Peeler. You will see in the video below that I resisted buying these because I’m just plain lazy. Oh… how I wish I’d purchased these inexpensive little tools sooner!
I created a little video a while back, and it mentions DebraConrad.com… but I’ve since moved my tutorials to this website. Make sure to check out my “elbow action” in this video.
In this video I show you exactly how I remove tape and stickers (labels) from all the products I sell on Amazon (make sure to leave you tips in the comments section below):
