I really love to recycle old jars and containers, but sometimes getting those stickers or labels off of the containers is super tough. I've tried a few different ways to remove them, and this is my new favorite one! It will take your labels off with ease, and allow you to upcylce and reuse some of your old containers! I'm so excited to share this Homemade Goo Gone - Sticker and Gunk Remover recipe with you!
You will need ½ cup of Coconut Oil, ½ cup of Baking Soda and 6 drops of Lemon Essential Oils.
Mix the coconut oil and baking soda together in a bowl. The coconut oil will be solid at first, but as you mix, it will soften and blend with the baking soda. Now add your lemon oil and mix well with a spoon.
Smear the paste all over the label you want to remove and let sit for 15 minutes.
To get the label to pull away from your container, run it under warm water and start to pull back the label. If some areas resist, simply scratch them a little with your fingernail to get them off...they should detach pretty easily. Once your label is off, use a damp cloth to remove any leftover sticker. Rinse and dry...
And there you have it! I am using this little container to store my Sticker and Gunk Remover!
Let me tell you, this stuff works for more than just removing stickers and it smells amazing!!! It softens your hands like you wouldn't believe too! You can use this mix to remove tape residue, sticky stuff from animal fur, sticky residue from your skin and like I mentioned before, I use it as a softening hand scrub too!
