Other Uses for Lighter Fluid

October 18, 2011

Lighter FluidLighter fluid for cigarette lighters (Ronsonal, Zippo, or store brand) is wonderful for removing sticky stickers or labels. It even works on fabric! Just a little bit will dissolve the messy sticky residue.

I had gotten some quilt squares on sale and left them in my car during 100 degree weather. Needless to say, the labels were sealed to the fabric. I had used the lighter fluid on solid objects and figured what could I lose. It works wonderfully. I just had to rinse out the fabric and I was so happy.

Just remember, no smoking during use.

My husband, a guitar player for years, finds that putting some lighter fluid on a cloth and wiping down his guitar strings removes any dust and oil buildup from your hands. This will enhance the life of the strings also.

The easiest way to remove price and other stickers, even from book covers and jackets, is lighter fluid. Just soak the label and let it sit a minute and most labels will lift right off.

Because lighter fluid is very volatile, it dries quickly and doesn't leave a trace.
