Cleaning labels off of glass jars

I had come into ownership of a bunch of glass jars for a project but some of them still had labels. I forgot to take before pics….boo.

I soaked them in the sink with warm soapy water to loosen up the label and it peeled right off but left the sticky residue. I found a few blog posts that said to make a paste of equal parts vegetable oil and baking soda.

Well what do you know, it worked! I put a good amount on each jar and then got distracted. Shocking. So it ended up sitting on the jars for a few hours – maybe 3?

 I took a washrag and got it a little wet and the sticky stuff came right off.

Stay tuned for the project I did with these now clean jars! 🙂

Happy crafting!
