[urq] Sticker time

Windex makes a great "LIGHT" solvent.  You have to get the sticker off
first, but then you can remove the Sticky stuff with Windex.  Just let it
soak for about 5-min keeping it wet.  Then wipe it off.

The stuff that comes in the Aerosol Can that goes on White in color and
foams seems to work even better.  And both are probably more gentle on the
paint than GooGone or a real solvent.
