I often find that the most frustrating problems can have the simplest solutions. Take sticky label gunk, for example.
It is such a trivial thing, but who else here hates it when you peel a label off of a jar (or worse, off of a book!) and it leaves behind that awful, sticky residue?
It looks bad, feels bad, and eventually turns that nasty shade of gray from who-knows-what being stuck to it.
And nothing seems to work to remove it! That is, other than sitting there rubbing it off for half an hour with your fingers. With books and other fragile items, you don’t even want to try to get it off for fear of damaging the pages.
The good news is that there is a solution.
I have found how to remove sticky label residue naturally. This method is cheap, simple, effective, and you may already have the single needed ingredient in your home: Lemon essential oil.
I first discovered this trick a little under a year ago. I had been using essential oils (learn more here) for awhile and wanted to repurpose some old bottles. I peeled the label off, and there it was….a sticky ring all the way around the bottle.
And guess what? It worked!
