Tip: Non-Toxic Way to Remove Sticky Labels From Glass Bottles and Jars

Tip: Non-Toxic method for removing sticky labels from glass bottles and jars using two common household items.I love re-purposing glass bottles and jars. There are so many beautiful craft projects you can create with them. So, whenever I find a bottle or jar I particularly like, whether it's because of the color, size or shape, I clean it and remove the label so it's ready to use when the creative mood strikes.

Most of the time all it takes to remove a label is a good soak in some hot soapy water and a little elbow grease.

Other times, it's not so easy. Depending on the type of glue or adhesive that a manufacturer uses, it's possible that there is still a sticky residue even after the bottle has been washed. Fortunately, I have two, non-toxic, secret weapons that I frequently use when I can't soak and scrub the glue off. Chances are you probably have both of them in your house right now - cooking spray and Vaseline.

Tip: Non-Toxic method for removing sticky labels from glass bottles and jars using cooking spray My first choice for label and glue removal is cooking spray because it's handy in the pantry next to the kitchen sink.
Tip: Non-Toxic method for removing sticky labels from glass bottles and jars using cooking spray If glue still remains after a bottle or jar has been soaked, scrubbed, and scraped, spray the bottle with cooking spray, rub it all over the gluey areas and let it stand for a few minutes while you check your e-mail, fold laundry, have a cup of coffee or whatever.

Tip: Non-Toxic method for removing sticky labels from glass bottles and jars with Vaseline Sometimes, a bottle has some super duper gunky glue that even cooking spray can't dissolve. That's when I bring out the Vaseline.
Tip: Non-Toxic method for removing sticky labels from glass bottles and jars with Vaseline It's pretty much the same process. Just spread some Vaseline over the sticky area and let it sit for a few minutes.
Tip: Non-Toxic method for removing sticky labels from glass bottles and jars with Vaseline Wash the bottle in hot soapy water and scrub it with a wash cloth. Repeat if necessary.

No harsh chemicals, no fumes and no more sticky labels.
