How to remove the sticky glue from plastic containers after removing the label? I’ve tried soaking in water and it’s still sticky.

    Barbara, water doesn't usually work. Use solvents. Alcohol or goo gone are solvents.

    Hi Barbara. I'm Cindy. I suggest using WD40 to remove that adhesive. That's what car dealers use to remove adhesive from price stickers.

    Goo Gone or WD40.

    Hi Barbara, happy 2019. There are quite a few household products you can use to get that goo off. Try one of these -

    Goo gone, WD 40, followed by windex to remove the oilly feeling from the first 2 products ( if you chiose either one) The trick is patience ! Let one of the first 2 products sit on the label for a few minutes and the label and residue come to! Do not get the label wet before attempting either product . Go gone aka goo be gone and several other knock off names all act the sane way. When opening any goo gone product stick a sewing pin or needle through the bottle seal on the inside after removing the cap. A small amount is all you need, dont waste any or spill the entire bottlevshould it fall over! Happy label removing!
