HOME-MADE GOO GONE

2 Comments

Hi lovely people! How are you all in this beautiful September morning? 

Today I want to share with you a great tip that will help you remove all those bits of glue left behind when you remove stickers or labels from any container. I love this recipe as I am always reusing containers for all kinds of projects. The results are amazing. All gone. Sparkling clean. Good as new.

This recipe works brilliantly in glass but I wan’t sure if it would work equally well on plastic. I had few plastic bowls that I used for Big Monkey’s Spiderman party with stickers on them and I just couldn’t remove the glue (it looks like Spiderman stickers have super sticky powers!). The mixture worked its wonders in the plastic bowl also and it left no scratches, which was one of my concerns.

“What is that marvellous recipe?” I hear you say.
Well, something as simple as equal parts of oil and baking powder, something most people have in the house.

Put the mixture on top of the residue you want to remove and rub for few seconds. The baking powder works as an abrasive and the oil helps remove all the residue. Leave the mixture for 30 minutes or so and then give the container a wash to remove the  mixture.

Ta dah!!! The residue is gone and you can go ahead and reuse the container for anything.
