Prevent Bumper Sticker Residue With Car Wax

Prevent Bumper Sticker Residue with Car Wax

Bumper stickers are a great way to show your affinity for anything you want the person driving behind you to know about, but when you want to remove them, it's often a pain. Apartment Therapy suggests putting down a bit of wax before you stick that sticker on.

All you need to do is apply a small layer of car wax to your car before you stick on the sticker. When it's time to remove it, the sticker should come right off with no gummy mess.

      THIS GUY!

      I was young and didn't know what would happen. Five years later when they had faded and I wanted to remove them...WHOOPS!

        To clarify and preempt the possible response, obviously yes I am aware on commercial vehicles stickers on paint is common, was more referring to privately utilised modes of transport :P
