Using a sugar cube, Instructables shows us how to remove unwanted logos from a cell phone. The idea behind it is to use a sugar cube to scratch off the stickers on the cell phone. The sugar should not leave a mark on plastic or metal. Process with the following steps at your own risk – in the worst case, you could damage or leave a scratch on your phone.

  1. Place tape around the area you’re going to scratch. This is important because you don’t want sugar to get in the phone.
  2. Scratch the sticker with a sugar cube until it has disappeared completely. Repeat until the cell phone looks clean.
  3. Remove the tape and clean up the remaining sugar with a dry cloth.

If all went well, you will have a clean unbranded cell phone, with those pesky stickers from your carrier gone forever. Apparently, this trick will not work on some cell phone covers though – the sugar cube will leave a mark.
