Living with children means the occasional character sticker may appear on your furniture, but even fresh out of the box, our products are somewhat sticker happy. There are small round letter stickers that identify each of the parts, warning labels, which are required by law, and many models will also have a helpful sticker on the back panel which indicates useful information if ever you need to contact us. Please note that any warning or product information stickers are intended to be permanent and should not be removed. Attempting to do so may cause damage to the finish and would void the warranty.
While not all stickers can or should be removed, any princesses, part identification stickers, cars, or animals that decorate the surfaces of your unit should! This can be a tedious process and may damage both the finish and your fingernail if not done properly. Below are some tips for removing nonpermanent stickers.
- Use a blow dryer and apply heat for 30 seconds. This will soften the adhesive and make sticker removal much more effective.
- Use rubbing alcohol sparingly and wipe dry to remove any remaining residue. Always use caution when applying liquids to laminate, and test in an inconspicuous area first.
Never scrub, scour or saturate the affected area, as this can cause damage to the laminate.
Why permanent labels are so permanent:
Warning labels are not meant to be removed and attempting to do so can lead to disastrous results.
Any warning labels found on furniture are required by law. The manufacturer or supplier has a Duty to Warn which includes warning when "the danger is not obvious or well known to the user." Never remove these labels and use safety straps whenever they are included. Our units are tested based on proper assembly and correct usage.
