How To Get Labels Off Your Products

Get Labels Off


If you are doing Retail Arbitrage as part of your Amazon FBA business, then you know that you must get those labels off without damaging the product. Sometimes there are multiple stickers on a product especially if the item you are buying is on clearance. Getting stickers off something that is plastic is much easier than getting stickers off paper packaging. You have to be very careful not to damage the packaging. Find out the ways you can use to get labels off.

Get Labels Off – Scotty Peelers

What are Scotty Peelers? Scotty Peelers remove labels off paper or other soft surfaces. Scotty Peelers are either plastic or metal objects. You must be careful with the metal ones because they can damage the packaging and they are very sharp. I recommend plastic Scott Peelers over the metal ones.

Get Labels Off – Goo Gone

Goo Gone is a degreaser that removes stickers or tape residue. After you remove the stickers, there still may be residue left on the package. Goo Gone comes in a variety of forms. It comes as a liquid, a spray bottle and wipes.

Get Labels Off – Hair Dryer

Some people use a hair dryer to remove stickers. If you are using a hair dryer, make sure that it is not too hot because you could melt the packaging. There still may be some residue left so you still may have to use Goo Gone as well.

Get Labels Off – Heat Gun

Some people use a heat gun instead of a hair dryer to remove stickers. I would caution that make sure it is not too hot so you don’t melt the packaging.

Get Labels Off – Alcohol

Some people use alcohol to remove the residue instead of Goo Gone. Just make sure that you do not leave an odor on the packaging.

As you can see there are a lot of ways to remove stickers from Retail Arbitrage packages. I tend to use Scotty Peelers and Goo Gone. Also, your “go-to” method may not work on all packaging. To learn about more supplies you need for your Amazon FBA Business, checkout my list of FBA Supplies.

  1. Be sure to test the Goo Gone in an area of plastic packaging to make sure the Goo Gone won’t “melt” or disturb the packaging. I’ve had Goo Gone literally melt a hole in vinyl and some plastics trying to get stickers off so be very careful.
