Everybody hates when price tags can't be completely removed from books. Sometimes it can be removed neatly without leaving any residue but more often at least some of residue stays and sticks to fingers, paper...
I tried to remove sticky tags with heat, alcohol and acetone.
Step 1: Method 1: Heat
I used hairdryer to heat sticker. This is said to be useful for removing stickers from cars, windows etc. This works by heating glue on the lower side of the paper so it can be peeled easier.
It did help in removing paper but the surface of the book still remained sticky.
