Removing Label Glue from Glass

I have a container that once had a candle in it. The candle is gone and I peeled off the label. But how do I get the remaining glue off?

GooGone works well. Just apply a small amount and remove label with sponge, steel wool or even fingers. Depending on how much glue and how strong the glue is you may have to apply and rub more than once.

Acetone based nail polish (varnish or lacquer if you're in the UK) applied with a cotton ball will safely remove just about any adhesive from a glass surface. Works a treat on candle jars:)

I have good luck using a hair dryer to take the labels from glass jars.

I have used peanut butter, just spread a thin layer on the sticky residue, and then use hot water to rinse it off after about 5 minutes, you may have to use soap and water to get the oil off from the peanut butter.
