How do you remove the white product stickers from target boxes?

Recommended Posts

Not that clear security ones, but the white rectangular ones that they seem to put on every box nowadays. I thought I saw someone say you could do it with a hairdryer, is that right? What temperature?

 

thanks!

Hairdryer works great. Hot temp, just warm it up and slowly peel it off. It's easy. 

The security ones are more of a pain, but these are pretty easy.

i use a heat gun on high at 350F, if temp sensitive wait till they start turning slightly darker from the heat and slowly peal a piece at a time, if glue left over use clean piece of packing tape, heat the glue up slightly and dab with sticky side of tape. on the scale of 1 to 5 hairdryers i give it a .5, super easy. make sure you dont hold the gun/hairdryer in one place for too long, just move it around to evenly heat the surface

The security stickers leave more of a residue, that will need cleaned up with some Goo Gone or something.  Other than that, they come off with heat too.

The Target red and silver circle security stickers? I just sent 5 kits out with those on all 5. I didn't want to tear the paper printing on the box, and I didn't know if a hair dryer would take them off. I do use a hair dryer for all price stickers and they come off easily.

Yes, a hair dryer will take those off, but they usually leave a residue behind that needs some clean-up.

yes, heating the leftover glue and dabbing with sticky tape will take that off and not leave an orange fresh smell/grease stains.

I just breathe on them with and get them warm and moist and pliable and slowly peel them back.

 

That sounded real dirty
