Some are more stubborn than others, but removing stickers is always a tedious job nonetheless. Here’s three ways to make it easier.
One of the most annoying things when toiveling (dipping) dishes is to try to get those stickers off. Two years ago we posted a hack on how to toivel flatware and we thought it was time to tackle those pesky stickers. (Side note: Those Home Goods and T J Maxx ones are the worst ones!)
Step number one is to remove all stickers at home. Where you can sit while you do it and your fingertips are warm (that mikvah water is always freezing!)
1.Goo Gone maybe the one product that really has no competition.
Spray or pour some Goo Gone onto the sticker. Allow the liquid to soak into the sticker for 1-3 minutes to start breaking down the adhesive. With a small scrapper (putty knife), plastic knife, plastic card or your fingernails, peel off the sticker. Add more Goo Gone as needed.
2.Don’t have Goo Gone or looking for a more natural way to remove stickers? We tested a few different ways and these two are our top contenders.
Use a blow dryer. Give the sticker a blast with a hair dryer and it will loosen the glue. Peel off.
3.Mix an equal amount of oil and baking soda and spread on the sticker. Let sit. Rub and use a plastic card to scrape off.
