    What you need:
    - Acetone-free nail enamel remover
    - old sock

    1. Put some enamel remover on your sock and wipe carefully in one direction till the glue becomes sticky.
    2. Now use a fresh part of your sock and repeat step one.

    too much like work. heat em with a hair dryer or heat gun as you are removing them...Any residue left, just use the label and "dab" at it...Sticks to the label, releases from the box, and NO smell of chemical on the paper...LOL.

    Makes sense, when you have the label.
    My box came in without the label and the glue was hardened.

    oh nice. then the above also works, just grab a piece of tape. Duct Tape, normal Masking Tape, or even Box Sealing Tape...Just not LOW tack painters tape or similar...

    I have had to remove label residue many times and have had continued success with White Spirit, use a tissue to remove and a dry tissue to wipe clean. You can even use this product to loosen and remove labels, an example where I have done this is to transfer a label from a lesser condition to a mint box.

    I am putting this in this here as there really isn't a category to put it in and I just bought it so here it is.
    I just bought this box and the previous owner must have owned a cat. Where the stickers were that were removed has tons of hair on it. Any process to get the hair and stickiness off without messing up the box How To Remove Glue Stains From A Box - upasura6.jpg How To Remove Glue Stains From A Box - y8ataten.jpg

    If you are really patient, try pushing it off with your thumbs and fingernails, which I did with my Juliet box. If not, try a tiny amount of Goo Off.
