But polishes typically leave a residue. That will likely be a problem with absorbent surfaces.

And removing sticker adhesive wth the just torn off sticker itself forms an additional stress on the surface (in case of layered surfaces) and in my experience can transfer even adhesive back on the surface. But with sitckers one can peel off in one piece, which are from material that takes a strain and on sturdy surfaces (like glass) it should be the first means, as it could make other means obsolete.
