Turn your hairdryer to high heat and hold it over the sticker for about 45 seconds. After 45 seconds of direct heat, test a corner of the sticker and see if it peels away easily. If it doesn’t, continue the hairdryer treatment for another 45 seconds or so, and then start peeling off the sticker.

For large labels ,you might need to break it up into smaller sections, heating and then pulling up the label as you go.
