Somebody gave me a bunch of the yellow Speer bullet boxes along with some of the CCI hard plastic 22lr boxes. Ideal for storing small stuff. The labels are a problem; I want them off. Have tried peeling them off. The label tears. Soaking in water softens the paper so I can remove most of the paper with my thumbnail but there is still a sticky residue along with small bits of paper left. Just won't come clean.

Can anyone suggest a method of getting all the paper and adhesive off?

Thanks

rubbing alcohol, maybe? Paint remover or turpentine, or acetone? Get expensive trying, if you don't already have such things.

Product named "Goo Gone" will work

WD40 will take it off.

There's your winner right there.

WD-40 is great at removing adhesive residue.

Of course then you have to remove the WD-40 residue, but you can just wash them in hot soapy dishwater to do that .

Mabu like using CCI .22 boxes for parts storage.

Also make good temp water resistant box for small things in BOB or pockets when sealed with duct tape.

Good luck, I had the same problem with their .223 bullet boxes. I finally gave up.
