You’ve probably happened to want to reuse a glass jar and find yourself struggling with the annoying remnants left behind by the label. This sticky layer composed of glue and paper residue can be really difficult to remove.
Soap and water are certainly not enough to make the jar look like new again. Below we suggest a highly effective trick to completely remove all the sticky residue left by jar labels.
You only need warm water, liquid dish detergent and vinegar.
Fill a container halfway with water, add some dish soap and vinegar, and let the jar soak for 30 minutes. The labels will come off very easily.
To remove any glue residue left on the jar, use a cloth or sponge previously soaked in the same solution and rub well until all of it is removed.
This method is undoubtedly the most practical and fastest way to remove the sticky from glass jars that you will want to reuse.
