Monster Stickers Now Gone Thanks to Modern Mom

I decided to try again to remove the monster stickers from my dresser that I put on when I was a kid a long time ago when I found these instructions on how to do it at Remove Wall Stains at The Modern Mom:

STICKERS - Our kids love putting stickers everywhere and the easiest way to remove them is to soften the adhesive with heat using a blow-dryer. Do it for 10 to 15 seconds, then peel. If necessary, just repeat the process. For stubborn gunk, dampen a cotton swab with laundry pre-wash stain remover and rub until it penetrates the residue, then use an old credit card or spatula to scrape it off. Wipe the area with a damp cloth and let dry.

I am pleased to report that it really works! Now my dresser is monster free and it only took about 20 minutes, if that, once I got all my "tools." Thanks, Modern Mom! For more great tips, stop by her blog at Here is a short video showing me actually doing it.

Very nice! What a simple solution to something that seemed impossible. I stuck tons of stickers on my walls and my dresser when I was a kid.
