Removing the stick form a 300 hood.

->> This might be mild to some people but I have a 300 2.8 and on the hood was a sticker that some places give you to place somewhere on you while on the sideline shooting. I always place mine on the hood of the 300. Well I tore in off and now have a lot of the back of the sticker on it. What can I use to remove this other than my nails? My OCD is driving me crazy when I see that.

Sticky Stuff
Rubbing alcohol has long been a popular choice for removing sticky residue left behind from price tags, band aids and stickers. Soak the area for a few minutes, or dab onto skin, and wipe clean.

->> cigarette lighter fluid or goof off - removed just about any sticky substance. Also takes off pencil marks, bugs off windshields and who knows what else. Also works as a contact cleaner. It evaporates quickly. Don't use near an open flame or the coating of a lens. :)

->> First you might try putting a damp rag on it for a little while, soaking the paper, and then scraping off. The last couple times someone put one on fully (I just peel off about a half inch on each end and tape it to the hood), I was able to moisten it this way and then scrape it off.

->> If you don't want to mess with chemicals, heat will help as well. Either (very briefly) run a hot blow dryer over the area or using Sam's suggestion, a wet rag with hot tap water.

->> Goof Off or Goo Gone might take the paint off the hood. It was strong enough that it took the finish off the carbon fiber on my Nikon 400 hood. Someone had used duct tape to keep it together before I got it and Goo Gone was the only thing that took the old tape residue off. But the finish went from being kinda semi gloss to rough and flat.

->> When I am given a big sticker, I just use a rubber band to hold it on to the hood. Then while going thru the crowd at the end of the day heading to my car, I give the sticker away to a little kid. Let his/her mommy worry about scraping it off of the walls in their house.

->> Naptha based sticky removers like Goo Gone, or just plane lighter fluid, are usually effective and about the safest bet for not messing up your original finish. Goo Gone smells better, though. Always good to have around.

Baking soda is an abrasive, so I wouldn't really recommend that for a lens that has any sort of decent top finish that could be roughed up. I might be concerned about residual particles getting inside, too.

->> Years ago I read a horror story, I believe right here on Sports Shooters, where someone was trying to remove gunk off the barrel of a lens and somehow the glass in the lens was damaged by the fumes of whatever substance was used. I believe the culprit was rubbing alcohol, and it caused the glass in the lens to permanently fog.

Be careful.
