Remove Old Decals: Oven/Stove Tips

Stove and oven decals are a great way to add some personality and style to your appliances. However, when it's time to change up your kitchen décor or replace an old, worn-out decal, removing it can be a challenge. Old decals that have been on your stove or oven for a long time can be difficult to remove without damaging the surface. In this blog post, we will provide you with some easy tips on how to remove old decals from your oven or stove.

Gather Your Materials

  • Before starting, gather all the necessary materials you will need. You will need a rubber scraper, rubbing alcohol, acetone, and an old cloth or sponge.

Rubber Scraper (Optional)

  • Start at one corner and slowly peel the decal away from the surface. Be gentle to avoid scratching or damaging the surface.

Apply Rubbing Alcohol Or Acetone

  • Rubbing alcohol, a sponge, and a little elbow grease is a great way to remove any food residue and dirt. Acetone, on the other hand, is much stronger and when used with a sponge or old cloth will almost always remove the decal with ease.

Use a Decal Removal Solution (Optional)

  • If the decal still won't come off, try using a decal removal solution. This is a commercial product that is designed to remove decals and adhesive residue. Follow the instructions on the package carefully, and be sure to test the solution on a small, inconspicuous area first.

Be Patient

  • Removing an old decal from your oven or stove can take some time, so be patient. Rushing the process can result in damage to the surface. Take your time and work slowly and carefully.

Conclusion: Removing old decals from your oven or stove can be a frustrating and time-consuming task. However, with the right tools, and a little patience it can be done without much effort. By following the tips outlined in this article, you can remove old decals from your appliances without damaging the surface and the whole process being stress free. Remember to be patient and take your time, and your oven or stove will look as good as new in no time.
