Sticky residue is often left behind when you are removing a sticker from a surface such as glass or wall, where the sticker has been pasted on for a while. How to remove the sticky residue easily?

There are several methods you can use, and we will list them in this article.

Stickers are fun to use and apply on any surface you like, but they can be a pain to remove!


Some stickers are easier to remove, so you can simply use your hands and fingers. You can peel off the sticker, and find that it doesn’t really leave much stubborn residue behind on the surface. The surface also makes a difference – whether it is a smooth and polished surface such as glass or plastic, or a rougher, textured surface such as a stone wall or wooden surface.

If you find that the sticker is comparatively easy to peel off, and the residue left behind is minimal, you can peel off the sticker by going around the perimeter. Peel a bit off from every side, and then keep going in towards the center of the sticker, attempting to peel it off as one single piece, instead of ripping away shred by shred. This usually works when the adhesive on the sticker was not that sticky to begin with, and there is lamination on the surface of the sticker, so it’s held together quite intact throughout the peeling process.

As a last step, use hot soap water to go over and wipe away any sticky residue or film that is left behind.


Some stickers are more stubborn to deal with.

When you try to peel them off, they leave behind residue, or jagged shreds on the surface.

In cases like these, you can opt to use adhesive remover. We would recommend the 3M Adhesive Remover which you can easily purchase at most hardware shops. Simply spray some of the adhesive remover over the sticker and leave it in for a few minutes. You will find that it becomes much easier to peel off the sticker then – it comes off in one piece.


Another option is to use lighter fluid such as the Zippo lighter fluid. The application is similar, and this works well for small pieces of stickers. Again, leave it in for a few minutes, and when you return to it again, you will find that the sticker comes off easily.

USING A SCRAPER: You can opt to use a scraper, but be sure to test it out gently at first, making sure that it doesn’t scratch the surface you are working on.

ADVISORY: When working with these liquids and materials, be sure to work in an airy environment, and use gloves if you need to. Wash your hands thoroughly, and make sure they don’t come into contact with your eyes.

View Fireworks at Padang Singapore on National Day

If you are searching for the best spot on National Day at the Padang Singapore to view the fireworks and festivities, please watch this video:

This article from Straits Times also highlights the best places to get the perfect shot on National Day from the Padang of the Singapore festivities on the night of 9th August 2019.

About Padang Singapore

Padang is a Malay word meaning ‘field’. The Padang Singapore is a huge open field located in the Downtown Core in Singapore. It is surrounded by several significant landmarks, such as the City Hall MRT Station, City Hall, the Old Supreme Court Building and the Saint Andrew’s Cathedral.

Padang Singapore is used as the venue for many events, including the National Day Parades due to the significance of the first National Day Parade having been held there in 1966.

Padang Singapore is also used as a recreational area with both the Singapore Cricket Club and the Singapore Recreation Club having been formed there in 1870 and 1883 respectively.

In Singapore, it is a common sight to see the National Day flags being displayed around the island, on HDB flats and around the residential estates.

We at also offer NDP banners to decorate office spaces and condos and business areas, with ready templates that you can customise to include your company’s logo, and quickly be prepared to join in the festivities.

If you are a visitor to Singapore, welcome!

We love this sunny island we call home, and every year when National Day swings around, we become all nostalgic and emotional, especially when national day songs are in the air wherever you go, in the car on the radio as you are navigating through peak hour traffic, at the supermarkets as you are navigating the aisles, and more.

Here are a list of National Day songs, including some of our favorites – Stand Up for Singapore, Count on Me Singapore, We Are Singapore, and our personal favorite and guaranteed tearjerker (especially if you are a Singaporean celebrating NDP overseas) – Kit Chan’s rendition of ‘Home’.

Top 5 Choices for Condo MCST Poster and Sign Stand

What is a condo MCST?

The following is defined on the popular site Moneysmart:

The Management Corporation Strata Title (MCST) refers to the managing body of your condo. It’s formed under the Building Management and Strata Management Act (BMSM), Chapter 30C.

The name of the managing body is always presented as MCST No. XXXX, where the serial number is issued by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA).

We have found that condo MCST staff usually contact us to look for display items or printed materials, sometimes for directional signage purposes or to disseminate information to the condo residents in a professional and presentable manner, and sometimes for decoration purpose, when they are dressing up the condo for festive occasions such as Chinese New Year, Christmas, Hari Raya or National Day.

Condo MCST staff can count on professional printing service providers such as to provide them with solutions that are both well-designed and high quality, adding to the overall aesthetics of the condo facilities.

This is a definite step up from the old days when some condo MCST staff would just print out from their laser printer and paste A4 paper all over the estate with scotch tape or blutack. Engaging a professional printing company to supply premium solutions which are an investment that can be reused multiple times for different ocassions is the smarter way.

In this article, we cover the 5 top choices for condo MCST clients that we serve, which are great investments in the long run :- sign stands, snap frames, acrylic frames, pvc banners, tripod easels with foamboard posters.

Sign Stands – for directional information

Sign Stand (A4/A3)

Sign stands are great for directing traffic or passing information to residents, for example directing them to the function room for events, or to alert them that certain facilities such as the pool is not in operation and when it will be operational again. Sign stands come in A3 and A4 sizes for the sign holders, available in both landscape and portrait format.

Snap Frame – for lift, notice boards, common areas.

Snap frames are great and easy to put up

Snap frames are great for display in lifts and elevators, as they are flat and lightweight, and you can attach the snap frames in the lifts using foam tape, without needing to drill holes in the lift to put up the frames. Also, snap frames are preferred for poster display, because it is super easy to exchange posters as and when you need to – simply snap open the sides of the snap frame, and you are able to swap your posters or inserts. You can also use the snap frames for notice boards to share information and events with your condo residents.

Acrylic Frames – for poster display

Frame a Poster with Acrylic Sandwich Frames

For the sleek and classy look, clients prefer to use the Acrylic Frame to display their posters. You can have them around the condo clubhouse or lift landings. The spacers can be removed to separate the acrylic pieces, so you can exchange the poster inside when you need to.

PVC Banners – for festive occasions

NDP Banners!

Tripod Easel with foamboard posters

These display solutions are a great start for most condo MCST clients that we serve – but are not all that we do. We also provide banner stands, backdrops (this is great for the MCST who are hosting their annual general meeting or AGM session), sticker labels, decals, wall murals, and many other display solutions.

Another area of interest for condo MCST is security. We recommend this post 5 Tips MCSTs should consider to improve their Condo security which propose inexpensive and simple tips to tighten security in the estate.
