What you Need to Easily Remove Labels: 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 …
Plug in a hair dryer. Apply heat to the label by moving the hair dryer in a back-and-forth motion. Peel the label off. The heat from the hair dryer will have softened the glue adhesive.
Avoid the temptation to use something sharp to scrape the glue off – this could scratch the glass. Moisten any paper residue with a damp cloth. Then, apply an acetone-based nail varnish remover and rub or roll the glue away from the glass. Use hot soapy water to remove any remaining glue.
The method is so simple. Mix together equal amounts of baking soda and cooking oil – for one small jar, a tablespoon of each will be plenty. Rub the mixture all over the sticky parts of the glass jar. Leave it on for 30 minutes. Rub with an abrasive scrubbie (I used steel wool) Wash really well with soap and water.
