Another product to remove sticky residue is De-solv-it. It has a natural citrus base which shouldn't affect the wood if you are worried about using Turps or White spirit. I got mine from Bunnings in Aus, but I'm sure you could source the equivelent from Homebase or B&Q for those in the UK.

Worked really well, just applied it with an old dry rag. Then after rubbing in for a bit I used the back of a butter knife to scrape off.

Yup, I used that.

Last year I got a pre-knocked bat that wasn't really knocked in. I didn't get a chance to use the bat as I hated it and usually picked up one of the team bats. Since the bat was sitting in my garage through the long winter decided to oil and knock it myself.

Removed the stickers and scuff sheet with hair dryer and a product called Goo-Gone pro similar to de-solv-it. I was able to get rid of all of the gum with no trouble and went ahead with a fine 180 sand paper and sanded the bat a little.

At least some oiling tonight and knocking in over the weekend will make this bat useful enough for pre-season practice before I get a new bat.

Thanks for all the great tips.

Great thread. I'm planning on refurbing my two lavers during the off season. Both have extra tec facing which I've never really liked on my bats so will be nuding them up completely stickers and all.

I'm about to refurb something I acquired on the cheap BUT.....the bat had a face sheet the entire length of the face, including going over the stickers. Now it's a Salix and wanting to keep the stickers I managed to peel off the face sheet and keep them intact. However they are obviously sticky. What's the best thing to remove said stickiness?

I'm refurbing right now and just gone through the sticky removing,  use some linseed oil on the stickers, works a treat.

Double-D eucalyptus oil. Extremely effective.

Hi, great thread this.  I've got a nice Charlie French bat with a fibre glass scuff sheet that I would like to remove.  Do I fellow the same steps as removing any scuff sheet or are there any hints/tips for specifically removing fibre glass scuff sheets?

Thanks.

Fibre scuff sheets typically don't come off as easily.  I'd recommend following the steps as outlined,  using heat to try and lift the sheet,  but you are likely to need to use either white spirit or sanding to remove what remains.  Typically fibre sheets 'rip' inconsistently along the fibres so it doesn't all come off in one piece.

will using the blow dryer minimize chances of wood coming off with the sheet?

Almost certainly! I did not use it enough and got a tiny bit of take up but I am sure if I did it would have been fine and go really slow!
