Un-Do is one version, Goo-Gone is another. Both work well. I'd be careful with lighter fluid. While it will remove the sticker, don't rub it on the cover's surface since it will remove the ink as well.


I've been meaning to try Goo Gone as well. One question, though...any chance it will damage the ink, or is it pretty gentle on the lp covers?

I've never had Goo Gone damage or remove ink. It will sometimes leave a darker spot where it soaks into the cardboard a bit, but if the cover is left exposed to air, it will dry out in a few hours.

I'd also add that some stickers e.g. older price tags and name/address stickers, use water-based adhesives. A liberal amount of saliva works great for removing this type. Messy but it works.

HA! Glad to see I'm not the only one who uses this method. As Cactus says, messy but it works.

This has also worked for me, but I find that you have to get at the sticker before it has been on the jacket for too long a time.

Another thing, I notice that removal success is dependent on the thickness of the sticker, the thinner the harder.

However, if you're not sure if the sticker can be removed without damaging the cover, leave it on. Many times, it will eventually fall off by itself.

I use Goo-Gone as well. Get the sticker wet and gently rub off the top layer of paper, then spray it with goo-gone and gently rub the adhesive residue till its gone, then wash it all off.

I noticed "Un-Do" for the first time at a scrapbooking store a couple weeks back, always used Goo-Gone until I read about lighter fluid here on the RCG. Always experiment with the ones that are not your favorites. In my experience the less rubbing the better, it's the soak and peel that has given best results here but when the glue stays on the cover, dabbing/rolling a q-tip across it sometimes works (change to a new q-tip often)

I've been using Goo-Gone for years.

    That's exactly what I do, after the missus told me to try! In 90% of the cases it works fine. If there remains glue, I use lighter fluid to remove it.

I also use Goo Gone, but use a bunched up tissue instead of a q-tip.
