Removing Label Adhesive from Glass Jar

I have a Yankee Candle jar that held a large candle. I got the label peeled off, but I'm still trying to remove the glue. Any ideas? I've tried soaking and scrubbing, but some of it's still there.

GOO GONE!!! I had a similar problem and researched various options after trying many things. I tore up a sturdy paper towel into pieces that would cover the sticky residue and saturated them with Goo Gone, and then covered the sticky stuff with that. After only letting it rest for a few minutes, I then used soaked towel to scrape off the rest of the residue and it came right off!!! Hope this helps other who found this forum looking for an easy solution that wouldn't take too much time or drive them crazy scraping for hours!

Acetone should dissolve the glue.

Have you tried the acetone in nail polish remover or WD 40?
