Removing Sticker Residue from Glass

Don't you just hate it when you get something new made of glass with a sticker on it. You remove the sticker, but it leaves a sticky goo like substance on it. Problem solved! Just put some rubbing alcohol, mineral oil, or nail polish remover on a cotton ball or paper towel and rub it. The residue comes right off. So easy!

Those are really great suggestions. I am definitely going to be trying them. Also, I have used the same fluid you use for a cigarette lighter and that works really great, too. Just squirt some on a cotton ball and it takes the sticky goo right off! Thanks for the tip!

WD-40 will also take the sticky glue off. I take the container outside to do it though and then wash the WD-40 off.

Vegetable oil rubbed in to the spot, left for five mins or so, then wiped off works as well as anything. I keep a little in a sprayer for this (and for conditioning my cast iron pans after washing).

You can also use "Pure Citrus" air freshener and a flat blade safety razor which is what we used as Merchandiser's for Home Depot to take the old price tags off the shelves.

The easiest way to remove a sticker from a glass or jar is to place hot, not boiling water in the jar and let it set. The sticker should be easy to remove. If it is not then it might take doing it twice. Don't boil the water for plastic jars, it could melt the jar.
