Quick Tip: How to Remove Sticker Residue
I’m popping in today with another quick tip! A few weeks ago, I decided to start doing some quick tip posts…they can be about anything, just as long as it’s something I think might be useful to someone. And it has to be fast and easy to accomplish. My first quick tip was about how to create drainage in planters without holes. I needed to do that for this hanging planter. Today I’m talking about something we’re all familiar with…how to remove sticker residue from bottles and jars.

So removing it is pretty simple. Don’t bother with Goo Gone…I mean if you have it on hand you can use it, but olive oil also does the trick. I just poured a little bit onto a paper towel and started scrubbing the spot. When about half of it was off, I rinsed it and started scrubbing again. When it’s all gone, clean with soap and water and that’s it:
See? Easy. No more excuses for being lazy and keeping the sticker gunk on your bottles and jars forever. 🙂
