Peeling the sticker with your fingernail from one corner is the easiest way to remove a sticker from the fridge surface. If you don’t have long, sharp nails, use a plastic spatula or putty knife edge.

I Used

  • A putty knife 

Step 1: Apply Hot Air

First, I plugged in my blow dryer, pushed the “On” button. After that, I held the dryer 2-3″ far away from the sticker to apply hot air, but not to damage the fridge surface. After applying the heat with hot air for 1 minute, it loosened the glue.
