I take it the cover is not later wiped down with distilled water or some other solution to remove the lighter fluid residue?

this is a great thread, but so far I've read quite a lot of different opinions.

i think the lighter fluid seems like my best bet at the moment, but my concern is using too much of it. should i just be lightly applying some with a q-tip or something for 10 minutes or so until the sticker comes off? does this work on a matte finish or will it stain?

    I use ordinary water with a drop dish-washing-detergent to remove the minor lighter fluid residue without any issues 'till today.

    In this case you should be careful and make a test at an invisible part of the cover first. Some of these covers does lose color if they're treated with lighter fluid!

Really? Now your dealing with the greasy residue of the dish washing liquid!?

This reminds me of The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly!

Hey B big, I'm not starting trouble with you, BUT

which part of the cover is the invisible part!?!

    1. I don't know, what kind of dish washing detergent you use, but the one I use removes grease real good! Of course I don't use it undiluted. A drop in tepid water, that's enough and removes every kind of grease. I thought, that it's understood to clean the area again with pure water!?

    2. Just to give you a hint, I loosen a minor part of a seam where it's glued to the back and try there first. After finishing, I glue it again and nobody can see a thing. With the times I've evolved a kind of intuitiveness to 'see' the kind of cover that might react sensitive on this treatment.

    And who can tell? Maybe the fly one swallowed tastes good?! .

hi there... here every second-hand records shop put the price sticker on the sleeve.
it was really freaking me out so I asked an old seller how to get rid of this sticker..he took hair dryer,took out the vinyl record of course...
I tried that at home and it works great, at least for me.

Can you remove stickers from the label of a 78 rpm with un-do or will it remove the label too??
