This guide will cover how to remove stickers and clean sticker residue off your frame and fork.

You will need:

  • Water
  • Dawn dish soap
  • Bucket
  • Sponges
  • Hair dryer


1. Spray your bike with water to get most of the crud off.

2. Then coat it with soapy water and scrub it with the sponges.

3. Rinse. (Repeat step 2 if necessary.)

4. Dry with a soft cloth.

5. Spray some polish on your frame and wipe it around to achieve a high shine.

6. Admire your shiny bike!


It depends on the decal, but sometimes if you heat the decal with a hair dryer, it will peel up easily and leave little to no residue. I’ve used this technique to successfully remove stickers from bicycle rims and car windows.
