    Would it hurt them to be soaked in water for a while? I stuck on some new fancy paper labels I got for Xmas, and now they wont fit into my cd player in the truck. It seems they are too thick. I have to get the labels off, and they are stuck pretty good. Any opinions?

    Thx
    Mike

    I don't think water will hurt the disc, but it may screw up the cd to remove the label. The adhesive may pull off some of the cd backing, even if you soak it.

    you may try some of that citrus stuff they sell at the store to remove adhesive, hell if it screws it up just burn another cd but no water won't hurt it, you may have to clean it lightly after it dries to get some spots off that's all

    Rubiing alcohol also takes off the sticker adhesive (sp?)

    Be careful with using Rubbing Alcohol. I used it on my CD's once and it took off some paint and left a haze. [​IMG]

    Be careful. The Paint on the top can come off. Which removes the ink used tto record the data. It happened to one of my burnt CD's. I don't know what caused it to happen though. It just started peeling, and stopped working.

    There's no situation in life so tragic that I can't look back on it and laugh, "Ha ha! Glad that didn't happen to ME!
