3.       The vinyl should come away easily but if you are having problems, try gently heating the corner of the vinyl sticker with a hairdryer on a gentle setting. This should loosen the adhesive from the vinyl and allow you to peel the sticker away from the wall. Continue heating gently a section at a time and peel away until complete.

5.     If the adhesive is more stubborn, for glass surfaces try window cleaner. For walls, an acetone based adhesive remover should work on stubborn spots. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions before using on painted surfaces or wallpapers. Always test a small section first, in an area which is less visible, to ensure it won’t remove the paint colour from the wall.
