I used to always reach for a chemical adhesive remover, but, not anymore! Slowly, but surely, I'm trying to eliminate chemicals from our lives and I've got a great way to remove labels. Are you ready? It's peanut butter!
No-Chemical Adhesive Remover
We've all been there. You take a label off a bottle or jar for a DIY project and you're stuck with that sticky adhesive that won't come off.
I came across this stack of Pinot Noir wine cups and knew they'd make a great recycle/upcycle project, so all I needed to do was clean them up - after drinking the wine, of course! As I peeled off the label, I was left with a sticky film.
I put a dab of peanut butter on my finger and proceeded to spread it across the adhesive on the cup:
After it was covered, I left it on the kitchen counter to work its magic!
After about an hour, I wiped away the peanut butter and gave the cup a good washing.
Clean and ready for my project!
Easy Peasy...I hope you'll give it a try the next time your faced with sticker adhesive! Be sure to visit my blog for other projects and tips...After the holidays, I'll be sharing what I did with the cups!
