Are you ready to have your socks rocked off? I am not even kidding. I have the magic ingredients on How to Easily Remove Labels from jars and containers without leaving that annoying adhesive residue behind! Hands down this is the best way to remove labels and I have tried them all!
If you are like me you are always thinking “I could use that for something!” when I empty out a jar. (or peanut butter container!) And I do use them. In my craft room to store all my little supplies! I simply spray paint all the lids and voila…I have cute jars for next to nothing compared to the ones sold in the craft stores!
That glue on jar labels drives me nuts! I can peel the paper layer off and then I am left with this: Yucky, sticky glue residue.
Well not any more my friends!!
What you Need to Easily Remove Labels:
- Baking Soda
- Vegetable Oil
That’s it!! Mix equal parts of the two to form a runny paste.
Once I remove the paper part of the label, I mixed up my magic paste. I apply a thick layer of it to the jar and smear it all over the gluey sticky part.
I let it sit on there about 10 minutes or so. That number is not exact. I slapped it on the jar and then got distracted a few times with the kids and remembered to come back to it as I passed by. I took a paper towel and then wiped away the paste from the jar. All the adhesive that was left on the jar was now wiping away with my paste mixture! I gave the jar a good wash with soap to get rid of the oil residue and I was left with this crystal clear jar! Hands down this is the best way to remove labels that I have found using no harmful chemicals.
I am going to start using this method to easily remove labels every time I need to remove labels for my Decorated Soap Dispensers and if I ever need to make a chalkbaord labled bottle or any more of my wine bottle luminaries I will remove labels with ease! I wish I had this back when I was still using vinegar to get the gunk off! This method doesn’t make my house smell like we are dying Easter Eggs :)Tweet about it!
