How do you remove sticker gum from a car body?

How can I remove sticker gum from a car body? I put a bumper sticker on my car a while ago, and I'm trying to take it off before I sell my car.

Removing sticker gum from a car body can be difficult. But you can use products like Goo Gone or Goof Off to make it easier. If you’d prefer not to buy any products, follow these steps to remove sticky residue from your car:
  • Wash the sticky area and soak it with warm water.
  • Apply a mix of dish soap and hand lotion to the sticky spot with a microfiber towel.
  • Gently rub the sticky residue until it starts to come off.
  • Once the adhesive has been removed, rewash the area with soap and water.
Hopefully, that’ll do the trick! If you’re still having trouble removing the sticky substance, you can always invest in professional cleaning products or services. While it’ll definitely be more expensive than the DIY option, a professional can get rid of the sticker gum without any risk to your paint job.
