Time to clean up the old 60 series of travel stickers collected over the years. The oldest stickers being exactly 16 years old, some were faded and becoming brittle and almost non existent now. Was out there struggling today with the eucalyptus oil on cotton wool. Next tactic was going to be the nail polish remover.
Somewhere behind me I heard a voice call out “hair dryer”. Use the hair dryer! I turned to see that my neighbour had seen me struggling. Says he uses it on his tow truck all the time to renew his large advertising labels.
So out came the hair dryer, or blow dryer, and it worked an absolute treat. I had most of them off within 30mins. There were a lot. Just the residue to come off now but I ran out of nail polish remover.

Hot air gun is more effective than a hair dryer, but be careful on glass.
Turps will get the adhesive off then a wash with metho to get the turps off.

Go to coles or wollies and buy a product called Orange Power "sticky spot & goo dissolver"; comes in 110ml orange bottle with a press top for poring.
