Recycled glass jars and bottles can be put to lots of good use around the house for storage or decorating. The most challenging part of recycling glass jars, however, can be getting the label completely off with no traces of the sticky gunk left behind. In the past I've used a product called Goo Gone for this job and it's always worked well. But guess what? You can make your own Goo Gone by simply combining vegetable oil and baking soda.

    Bug Spray! Spray it on, leave a few minutes, label comes right off! I found this out from a friend, after spending hours trying to clean kids sticky labels of all their melamine closets with a blade scraper!
