I love reusing jars & containers. What I don’t love is getting off those stupid labels. Seriously, why are they so hard to come off? You scrub & scrub & nothing happens.
I decided to go on a search to find the best way to remove the flue & paper pieces that refuse to come off the jar. It wasn’t easy, I assure you. There are so many ways that failed.
But I finally found a tried & true method that worked like a dream.
Here’s what you need:
- Baking soda
- Vegetable oil
- Dish cloth or sponge
Peel off as much of the label as you can. Soak your jar or container in hot soapy water for 10-15 minutes. This will get the jar clean & loosen any extra glue or paper.
Make a mix of half baking soda & half vegetable oil. It should form a paste. Spread the paste mixture onto the sticky part of the bottle. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so.
Wash off the jar with warm soapy water.
There you have it! How easy is that? Now you can reuse the jar for anything you need.
I also tried it on plastic containers & it worked great on that too!
