The No Sweat, Chemical-Free way to Remove Labels and Glue Residue from Your Jars
Jars are used in a lot of do-it-yourself projects. They are great pops, but one thing that can get really annoying is when you try to peel off or remove labels or any traces of glue from the jars. First, you have to sink the jars in hot soapy water because they need to be cleaned. Make a paste of oil and baking soda-the ingredients should be used in equal quantities. Any type of oil will do the trick, but you can try olive oil for better results. Rub the paste on the sticky surfaces or on the labels and let it sit for a few minutes. Use a clean cloth to wipe the paste away and the labels. The labels and glue will come right off because the baking soda is a bit abrasive.
