Natural agents

In a spray bottle mix three parts water, two teaspoons rubbing alcohol and one part eucalyptus oil, alcohol solution or dish soap. Kindly spray the sticker. Soak for about 10 minutes. Eliminate as much of the sticker as possible, peeling back from a corner. If vital, reapply solution, soak and peel until entire sticker is detached.

Or, soak a cloth in vinegar and place it over the bumper sticker. Soak three to five minutes. Peel off the sticker from edges. Rub vinegar over the area to eliminate sticky deposit.

WD-40 or lighter fluid

Pour a bit of WD-40 or lighter fluid on a cloth. Rub on the edges of the sticker. Start to peel off a corner of the sticker with your fingers, a rubber spatula or an old credit card. Do not use a razor blade as it can scrape surfaces.
