How To Make Homemade Goo Gone

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. I tested it out on a couple little glass jars and it really does work! You can click on the link below to read the complete instructions.
Time: 5 Minutes Difficulty: Easy

    It works wonderfully! I also used it to clean up stains on my windowsill, and it did an amazing job on my dirty bathroom shelves!!! Really an all purpose cleaner.

    Thank you sooooo much! Being a lover of jars, I clipped this so I would not lose it! I am going to try it! P.S. If any of you are the kind that "send home food" for guests and your kids, remember jars make a great "don't have to return" container. A pickle jar will hold meatloaf with the gravy or beans, mashed potatoes & gravy! Endless possibilities. I went to the new Rubbermaid container system last year and it is NOT LEAVING MY HOUSE!!!!!

    Thanks for sharing this home made recipe. Goo Gone and/or Goof off is used like crazy and is one of my best friends. Now, I can make my own for a lot less!
