Removing Wrapper Glue from Tin Cans

I am going to be using tin cans from veggies and such for some crafts, and I can't seem to get the glue from the wrappers off, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what to use that is very inexpensive to buy?

We use WD40 for this all the time. It works great if you spray it on (outside of course) and let it sit for a short while. Sometimes it may require a second application

I just scrape it off with a knife.

Try sticking the cans in the freezer. The labels and glue should just pop right off.

Goo Gone works good too.

You can also try putting them in the Dish washer. The heat from the dish washer makes the glue really easy to get off.

Just run them under hot water as you pull gently, it comes right off!

Use a mixture of cooking oil and baking soda as an alternative to Goo Gone.
