    Sticker Residue, What Is It?


    Hi,

    I just want to throw in a disclaimer that this may sound like a paranoid question.

    That said, I recently purchased a new Asus ROG notebook. I'm loving it and it's running all my games and apps smoothly. However, I noticed that right out of the box it has this weird residue above the intel sticker. I've attached an image to show what I'm talking about. I've been reading that laptops can have toxic chemicals in them and I don't know much about quality control standards overseas.

    Does anyone have an idea of what the residue might be? I thought that the glue on back of these stickers were concise so it didn't make sense for the glue to just spread upwards, if it is glue at all.

    I guess I was just being paranoid, thanks.

    Too harsh!
    Rubbing Alcohol or nail polish remover on a Q-Tip.

    Hand sanitizer. Works great because it is alcohol based and has the thickening additive so it stays longer to dissolve the glue.

    You say WD-40 is too harsh (which it isn't) and then suggest Acetone which will dissolve the plastic?

    I clean any kind of label or sticker reside with Goo B Gone. Works great.
