    Can anyone help with cleaning sticky residue from Estee Lauder “Tea Cup.”
    I purchased a “Tea Cup” from a seller and they had a sticker on it over the tea itself and now there is a sticky residue also on the handle. I usually use “Goop” but am afraid to use it on such a delicate and expensive item. Please any helpful advise would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, I know someone will come through.
    Sincerely,
    Queenie

    HI QUEENIE <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    I HAVE TO DEAL WITH “STICKY” A LOT WITH MY OLD POWDER COMPACTS AND I DO WISH DEALERS WOULD NOT USE STICKY LABELS, OVER TIME THE GLUE WILL DISCOLOUR METAL.

    I USE A TINY BIT OF WASHING UP LIQUID ON A DAMP COTTON BUD AND FIND THIS THE BEST SOLUTION FOR “STICKY”……BUT GO CAREFUL…..

    HOPE I HAVE HELPED…….MARGARET……. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Thanks Margaret,
    I'll try your idea when I go home today. I guess the person was just not thinking when they put the sticker across the solid. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ /> Thanks so much!

    I love “Un-do” to get stickers off almost any surface and have used it on solids (not the label!). Within the “Un-do” family is one you can even use on your photos or to take off stickers in your photo album without any damage to the paper. If you use it on the Lauder gold boxes be very careful. If you overdo it, the gold gets off. You can buy it at craft stores or Bed, Bath and Beyond, or most hardware stores. If you want to remove stickers etc. from plastic, I recommend ìGoo-Goneî, works also great to get chewing gum off your childrenís cloth. If you have to clean empty old/older compacts/solids, try Mr. Clean ëMagic Eraserí. It even gets off most of the green stuff, most mirror look like new.
