Default How do I remove factory stickers from the base?

Just got my new capita horroscope fk and there are some like barcode stickers and such on the bottom. Should I try to take them off or just ride over them and hope they fall off?

Peel the sticker off. If there is a lot of glue left on the base, then get some orange cleaner and scrub it off. Wash area and rewax.
