Use Plastic Wrap to Remove Sticky Labels

To remove stickers or other "sticky" types of labels from hard surfaces, wet the sticker or label with water, then cover it with a piece of plastic wrap. Smooth down the plastic wrap the best you can, to remove air bubbles, and then let it sit for a while. Take off the plastic wrap, and you should be able to remove the sticker or label easily.


A coworker said that her daughter told her about this trick, and I really doubted that it would work. But honestly, it works like a charm! This is great for those of us who sometimes find "treasures" in thrift stores or at garage sales. :) No more need for rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, etc. to remove sticky labels!

I will surely try that method for removing stubborn labels that will not come off using the hair dryer method. Whenever I purchase a plastic container or anything that has a label stuck to it, I use the hairdrayer to heat the label and it will usually pull off easily and not leave a sticky spot.
