Use Boiling Water And Natural Agents To Remove Bumper Stickers
If you would prefer to avoid using chemicals there are two methods to use while removing bumper stickers. The boiling water method simply requires boiling water, patience (let the sticker soak for a minute), and then peeling as much as you can before applying more boiling water. With natural agents you will need to create a mixture of rubbing alcohol, eucalyptus oil and dish soap. Spray this mixture on the sticker and let it sit for 10 minutes before peeling and reapply as needed. You can also soak a rag in vinegar and let it sit on top of the sticker for five minutes and then use the rag to rub away the sticker residue.

Use WD-40/Lighter Fluid or Goo Gone To Remove Bumper Stickers
If you have any of these materials handy you can also get those pesky bumper stickers off if your other options aren’t available. With WD-40 or lighter fluid you will want to apply the fluid to the corners of the sticker and then use a mixture of peeling and scraping (with a spatula wrapped in duct tape to avoid scratching paint) to avoid damaging the vehicle. After using either method you can finish removing the residue with a rag dipped in rubbing alcohol. If using goo gone, you will want to perforate the sticker, apply the goo and then wait a few minutes. Finish up with dish soap and a wet rag.
