    You might try to find goo gone instead. I think it may be available there.

    quick question
    what if the enamel has a tiny scratch on the back? how do i cover it up?
    is there a way to smooth it out or fill it in with something?

    Frankly I'd leave it as it is, I'd rather take a slightly scratched pin than a potentially ruined one. But maybe someone came up with some crazy method, not that I know of any...

    I have been told by some uk friends that EVO-STICK Adhesive Cleaner is the uk version of goof off. I have never used this priduct as I amin the US .. so if you are going to try it... do so in a test spot or something first... I would hate to see valuable pins ruined.

    Hi! I am new to DPF and had some questions on fixing pin surfaces. I’m not sure how to DM you? But I was hoping to send you a couple pictures of pins that I’ve bought from other sellers who unfortunately did not disclose flaws and would not take the pins back. The surfaces are both different materials and I was hoping to get your input and advice. Thankyou! Please let me know!

    Adhesive Remover | Duck Brand
    I use this product to remove stickers from books and movies since I couldn't find Goof Off

    Has anyone ever tried turtle wax on a pin? We used to use it when I worked at Game Stop to help with scratched game disks.
