I was a stamp collector in my youth/teenage.
I had put it aside after I got interested in ham
radio and received my ticket. I thought I was
done with that hobby and gave my collection to my
daughter who in turn gave it to my granddaughter.
I have renewed my interest in collecting so I can
help my granddaughter.
Any of you that know a little about stamp
collecting you know that water soaking the stamps
is the number one way of removing them from the
paper. Problem is that now the self stick stamps
of today will not come off of the paper with
water. One of the way to remove the stamps is to
use an air freshener. You spray the backside of
the paper and peel the stamp off. For the rest of
the story, you need to rub baby powder on the
stamp to get rid of the sticky.
This air freshener is Pure Citrus Orange,
100% natural non-aerosol. I find it removes
labels and sticky from jars, labels on tools, etc.
Recently doing repair work, I tried it to remove
flux and gunk from a PCB. Sprayed it on the board
and let it run off to a paper towel. Using a paper
towel to wipe board just shreds the paper towel.
Cloth like an old tee shirt cleans and dries the
PCB without residue.
There is a warning about not spraying on
plastic. Maybe other cautions that may concern the
user. Sometimes I will rinse with water if it's a
big area. YMMV.
