I don’t know about you, but I come across so many glass bottles from packaging that would be great for other uses. You just have to be able to get the label off. Some are easy to peel…but others leave you scraping forever.
Then, I let them soak for awhile. (At least 30min, if not longer. I did things around the house and came back to them.) Some of the labels will just slide off with this method, however, I’ve found some are still very much stuck on.
So here’s my big tip that I hadn’t seen anywhere else…
I use a magic eraser to remove the leftover residue. (Actually I used one I got from the dollar store. Even better right!?)
As you can see, this one had quite a bit of reside remaining.
So I started scrubbing. If the eraser alone won’t cut it, sprinkle on some baking soda and scrub away. It does still take a little elbow grease.
And there you have it, an easier way to remove labels!
Do you have any other tips that work well for you when it comes to removing labels?
