Labels? They won't come off! NOW WHAT?!?

So a long-ish time ago, I bought some labels through Hog Wild.

They look great and fit their purpose. But.

Now I'm peeling off the labels and they're leaving all their sticky residue behind! I figured goo-gone would be the best solution, but do any of you think I'm going to hurt the chips themselves? We're talking brand new minty Mark Twain 50¢ chips. I DON'T want to have the disaster evar.

Suggestions pls.

Re: Labels? They won't come off! NOW WHAT?!?

I had to use a LOT of elbow grease to de-goo the residue left behind on my trops with hogwild's 2 mil vinyl. I soaked in warm soapy water and went to town with my fingernails. It was a lot of work but they all came clean.

My labeled set had both smooth and textured paulson RHCs and by the time I was delabeling that set, the ones on the textured inlays were easy to get off cleanly but the smooth ones really did bond with the label glue.

Hope you find an easier solution as my experience with just soapy water and gentle scraping sucked.

GL!

I've tried everything and found that the only way is to use your fingers and rub it off. Takes forever and after 400 chips I had two monster blisters. I did find that this solution worked best for soaking:

1 part dish soap
1 part goo gone
10 parts water (I used warm water)

soaked over night then rubbed the **** out of them with a washcloth and my fingers.

Try using peanut butter. It works great on fine wood furniture. It shouldn't hurt the chip, unless you start eating them.

I have used straight goo gone before on casino paulsons. It drys them out but a little oil and they are good as new.

I've soaked in straight goo-gone also...overnight too....no damage at all, except that the chips will smell like the stuff for days!

Haven't had this problem before, but I would try rubbing with some mineral oil. It will keep the glue from re-sticking as you remove it. And it's good for your chips.

Yup, try Goo-Gone. It works well to remove sticky residue.

I got mine at an Grand Auto auto-part store, but I'm guessing that Wal-mart, Target might carry it also.

Test on one chip first, and then wait 1 day to see if there are any side-effects or discoloration. There shouldn't really be any.

Q-tips and rubbing alcohol, goo gone or even nail polish remover should do it. I'd probably try it in that order.
