1.Use Mayonnaise To Remove Sticker Residue

Electronics such as laptops, TVs, refrigerators, etc. come with branding or feature labels (stickers) on them. They look ugly, but when we try to remove them, they leave ugly adhesive remains. To remove those stubborn sticker residues, rub the affected area with mayonnaise or nail polish remover for a minute or two, and clean it off with a tissue paper or cloth. If you don't have mayonnaise at home, nail polish remover can do the job as well.
