I tried a razor to remove the label on the stove cover and ended up shaving off some enamel. My fix so far is a fridge magnet.

OMG, I take ALL tags and labels off stuff. They drive me nuts as well. Years ago I was watching an episode of Simon & Simon and they were going through this woman's closet. She had disappeared or some such and they were looking for clues. All of her clothes had the tags cut out and they surmised she was in the witness protection program. I laughed myself silly over that.

Seriously, have you tried Undu? It takes off stickers and their residue and all that stuff. I've been using the stuff for years.

Never seen those before. Could be really handy, especially on the 19, for holding little things without cluttering the table.

Those trays are a brilliant idea. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.
As for the stickers... You can add me to the fold of people who hate them. Especially when they are almost impossible to take off. If they don't peel off the first thing is to get the shinny part of the label off. Soaking it in water usually works. Then you have a white gluey papery mess. My go to product is automotive brake cleans. Spray some on a paper towel and soak the gluey mess. Then wipe off. It works great. HOVEVER brake cleans is a solvent. Test it on a small area first. You don't want to find that it melts the plastic. Also it is highly flammable. Don't use around open flame. Or enclosed spaces. You can also use bug and tar remover.
The other thing to use on flat surfaces are plastic razor blades. You can get them at auto stores. They are not sharp like real razorblades but will fit in a razor blade scraper and won't damage the finish of what your trying to clean.

Holy Cow, Weezy, what a pain to do all that. Pick up a bottle of Un-Du and see how much easier it is to remove that sticky crud from stickers.

I rubber stamp and prefer my stamps unmounted. When I do purchase them already mounted to wood index blocks, I remove the rubber image. Sometimes there's still a bunch of that super sticky adhesive on the back of the rubber. Un-Du takes care of it and that stuff is lots stickier than what stickers leave behind on plastic, glass, paper or whatever.
