Removing label stickers
I am having trouble removing label stickers from wooden spoons that I recently bought. The sticker itself came off after some effort, but it remains sticky to the touch. Does anyone have any recommendations for how to remove the residue?
My dad was always the expert at getting off stickers on anything... I think he used Goof Off the most.
Nail polish remover will certainly work, but it might soak into the wood and leave a lingering smell. Give them a good scrubbing under hot water, and go for the polish remover if that doesn't work.
NO! Don't ruin your good spoon with solvents.
Good old fashioned washing soda does the trick. Soak the spoon in warm water (so it doesn't absorb the washing soda). Mix 2 Tbsp Washing Soda in a quart of warm water and put the sticky side in to soak. 1 hour later wash away your goo.
Works great on glass jars and useful looking plastic containers.
