I love recycling jars but the sticky glue from the label drives me crazy. I had tried other methods, soaked and scrubbed, however the glue was stubborn and would not come off.

The following method worked:
Soak the jar in hot water for 15 minutes, peel off the label and rinse any food scraps.
Dry the jar, coat the sticky glue with peanut butter (smooth). Set aside for a minimum of 30 minutes.



Label free jars
Coat the sticky glue on the jar in peanut butter


Wash the jar in warm soapy water to remove the peanut butter and sticky label.
Dry and use.



Label free jars
Clean jars ready for use


Tip
If the jar still smells of itís previous contents add 1 tablespoon of bicarbonate soda, put on the lid and sit overnight. Rinse and then use.

Thanks for this tip. I have been using pasta sauce jars to decorate as a tea jar with glitter and stuff and I find it hard getting it off the jars and lids. I will try this
I love the sounds of that as a use for old jars! Do you have hot tea or is it an iced tea? I discovered this when I made the museli I posted today. Peanut butter saved me!!!

Hi Naomi, Interesting solution. I've always found the simplest way is to follow your first step and then just soak a piece of cotton wool in pure eucalyptus oil, rub it on and over the glue and then wash off with hot soapy water. :) Robyn
Hi Robyn, I tried that and it didnít work in this case. The glue was super sticky. I had used peanut butter once to remove chewing gum from hair and thought I would give it a go and it worked! Cheers Naomi
