    Through some testing I figured out an excellent technique that takes about 15 minutes.

    I'm curious what technique worked best for you. I have used rubber cement thinner (which may not be on the current market in Canada; it's a brilliant way of removing most old price tags from cardboard blisters) but it fogged the bubbles edges. The fogging didn't show up when I placed the bubble against the new cardboard package, but it always bugged me that I couldn't figure out how to keep the bubble's edges fog-free.
    Kindly let me know your thoughts.

    99% Isopropyl alcohol. Works like a charm on bubbles for me. Dries quick and doesn't leave any streaking/hazing to the bubble. Just make sure you don't get any on the card while you are doing it.
