Lighter Fluid for Sticky Stuff Removal

Lighter 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.
