How do you remove from gel coat the sticky goo which is left after removing labels without damaging the gel coat?

How to remove labels?

Hi Dorothy, as Dennis posted WD-40 or Goo gone and for very stubborn stuff you can use acetone (finger nail polish remover). I'd try WD-40 or Goo gone first.

Hi Dorothy,
I swear by GooGone. If you have a really tough "sticky", try GooGone and use a plastic net scrubber to help remove gunk (gently). I've also had luck with plain cooking oil to remove labels.
You can find GooGone almost anywhere, including grocery stores. K-Mart, WalMart guaranteed to have it as would hardwares.
Good Luck! :) :approve: :cool:

Better than anything and clean. Use your hair dryer. Just heat it dont burn it and peal it off. Good luck

RE: How to remove labels?

Hi there,

A while back i found this british labels company, i ordered some plain labels from them as their prices were so low. Just thought it may interest you to know that they also had a page on their website with tips for removing sticky labels so it may be worth taking a look.
