[UK - mainly] What to use instead of Maplin label remover?

Hi all;

My can of Maplin label remover has just run out. Anyone have a suggestion as to what substance to use to remove Lego store price labels off the side of boxes please?

Thanks.

    Sticky stuff remover? It's literally called that. Though I'm pretty sure it's basically very watered down white spirit. Smells like it...

    Naphtha lighter fluids work very well.  It dissolves or looses sticker adhesives, I sometimes use a razor blade to help remove the item.  It evaporates cleanly and won't leave residues.  Not sure if this is the same a white spirits or not in the UK.

    Hair drier.

    I typically use isopropyl alcohol for anything like that.

    We also use the Lakeland one Huw mentions, it works well the only issue is the smell, not unpleasant smell but sticks on your fingers for ages

    Cheaper at the Range if you can find it. Also seems to be available at B&Q. (always thought lakeland just sold strange kitchen stuff you didn't really need 🤔).

    Lakeland sell it to, amongst other things, remove labels from jam jars and bottles when you are doing preserves.

    WD40 sprayed onto a bit of kitchen roll.  Wipe on let soak for a bit.  Removed the label and then rub again to remove the glue residue.
