I would like to remove the stickers on my visors that explain about the airbags from my car without damaging the visors. What is the best way to accomplish this?

Use a hair dryer to heat them up and carefully use a razor blade to get under the edge to start pulling it. Use alcohol to remove any residual adhesive.

Since it is possible that alcohol may damage some fabrics, use cautiously/sparingly at first. Applying alcohol to a rag and using it to wipe is always safer than applying alcohol directly to the fabric.

Perhaps try something milder than alcohol first? "Goo Gone," perhaps? – William Cline Apr 11 '11 at 22:14
@William Cline: Ooh no. Goo Gone ain't no milder than alcohol. Be sure of that. I've been stung by that in the past. Not that it's a bad product, but alcohol is truly safer. – Captain Claptrap Apr 11 '11 at 22:30
Indeed, Goo Gone and similar products will dissolve all sorts of plastics, artificial textile fibers, polyurethane, etc. – R.. Feb 22 '13 at 2:40
