1. Find a hard, smooth surface to work on. A cutting board or countertop works well.
2. Gather your tools: a straightedge (ruler or utility knife), scissors, and tweezers can come in handy.
3. Lay the sticker face down on the surface.
4. Use the straightedge to carefully cut along the edges of the sticker. Avoid cutting into the adhesive layer on the back of the sticker, as this can cause it to lose its stickiness.
5. Peel away any excess parts of the sticker that are not needed. You may find that small pieces remain stuck to your surface even after removing most of the sticker–this is normal.
6. Use tweezers to remove any small pieces of the sticker that are still stuck to the surface. If necessary, dampen a corner of a paper towel and use it to lightly scrub away any adhesive residue.
7. Your sticker is now ready to be reused! Stick it on another hard, smooth surface and enjoy.
Most importantly, make sure you protect your hands and eyes when working with stickers. Gather the following supplies:
- Rubber gloves
- Safety glasses
- A dust mask (optional)
- Removing the Sticker
- Start by heating up the sticker with a hairdryer set to high heat. This will loosen the adhesive and make it easier to remove.
2. Once the sticker is warm, use a plastic scraper or credit card to gently lift up one edge of the sticker. Try not to damage the surface underneath as you do this.
3. Once you have worked your way around the entire sticker, slowly peel it off of the laptop. It may come off in pieces, but try your best to avoid leaving any residue behind.
4. If there is any leftover residue on your laptop, you can use an adhesive remover or some rubbing alcohol to help get rid of it. Just be sure to test these solutions in a small area first, as they may cause damage if used incorrectly or in excess.
5. Once you are satisfied that all of the sticker residues have been removed, give your laptop a good cleaning with some mild soap and water. This will help remove any final traces of adhesive and leave your laptop looking good as new!
