Parking sticker

I have a parking sticker on my car from last year, that my university's parking department makes you put on. Unfortunately, these stickers are fairly substantial, and they make you put them on your bumper. Anyhow, I was able to get my day parking sticker off using my fingernails (ouch), but still have the one next to it, my night parking sticker, to take off. There is no way I am going to make my nails go through the pain they did. Does anyone know of any good products for this? I heard WD-40 might work.

I'd watch out with the gasoline, especially if you have a painted plastic bumper, as most cars made after 1990 have. One scratch and that gas is going to make the paint peel. They sell some stuff called "goof off" which works pretty well. Any hardware or home store would have it. Or you could try rubbing alcohol, but you run into the same problem as the gasoline.

The best way to get stickers off is with heat. You could try a hair dryer or rent a heat gun which is basically just a really big hair dryer. Once peeled off, goof-off works very well for removing the gunk left over from a sticker.

Try "Goo-Gone." It's available at most Walgreen's or other drug stores. Does a great job on everything I've ever tried.

in my experience hot water works well.  another method is to use corn (or any cooking) oil, which you could then wash off with soap and water.
