Soaking Labels off Glass Jars

I reuse all the glass jars in my house for everything from gifts to storage. I hate labels so I found a nice and easy way to soak them off without having to fill your whole sink. Just fill a larger jar with the smaller one you want cleaned. Put a drop of dish washing liquid in the smaller jar and fill with very hot water. Make sure it covers the top and flows down the sides. This is key.

Leave it to do it's job and the next day, your label will most likely stay in the water as you take out the jar. It's easy, doesn't take up much room and works great.

N-JOY!

I will definitely try this one because I have had a sink full of plastic and glass bottles trying to soak off the labels and using this Orange cleaner and it was a real chore! The challenge will be the plastic honey bottle jars so if anyone has a solution for that I am all ears!

Thank you!

You are very welcome. I admit this works better on glass but try it with the honey plastic ones. Overnight you never know how well it might work!!
