Peeling stickers off your refrigerator can leave behind a sticky adhesive that seems impervious to removal efforts. It isn't. You simply need a solvent to loosen the adhesive so it can be wiped off, yet not something so strong that it mars or discolours your refrigerator's finish. Try baby oil or mineral oil to get those little gobs of adhesive off the appliance. These types of oil are safe to use and in many cases will quickly dissolve the sticky stuff.
