    I use methyl hydrate and a heat gun, It might ruin some fancy finishes though I don't know. I know it won't take paint off a car though.

    If you want to bee safe, theres a boring but effective way.
    Just moisten the paper with water, and rub it hard with your finger.
    Won´t hurt the finish, but might hurt your skin a bit.
    Generally, paper stickers are a b**ch to remove.
    it´s because of the paper, not the adhesive.
  6. warm soapy water does the trick - and elbow grease :D

    GooGone is great stuff, WD40 won't hurt the finish and does a great job, but it stinks, and you have to clean THAT off afterwards.
