Glue > Price Tags

Coppertone. To remove dried glue and gum left by price tags and labels peeled from glass, metals, and most plastics, apply a few drops of Coppertone sunscreen and wipe clean.

Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening. To clean the adhesive left by a price tag, coat the spot with a dab of Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening, let sit for ten minutes, then wipe clean.

Heinz White Vinegar. To remove a price tag from a picture frame, glass, or metal, saturate the price tag with Heinz White Vinegar, wait a few minutes for the vinegar to dissolve the adhesives in the glue, and wipe clean.

Jif Peanut Butter. To remove a price tag, cover the tag with a dab of Jif Peanut Butter (creamy, not chunky), wait two minutes for the peanut oil to penetrate the paper, and scrub clean. The oils in the peanut butter dissolve the adhesives in the glue.

Miracle Whip. To remove the glue left behind by price stickers, cover the dried adhesive with a dab of Miracle Whip, wait three minutes, and wipe clean. The Miracle Whip works as a solvent to dissolve the gums in the glue.

Pam Cooking Spray. Spray a stubborn price tag sticker with Pam Cooking Spray and then rub with a cloth.

Ronsonol Lighter Fuel. To remove a price tag from glass, wood, or metal, saturate a cotton ball with Ronsonol Lighter Fuel and scrub the price tag clean. The solvents in the lighter fluid dissolve the sticky residue.

Scotch Transparent Tape. For a simple way to remove a price tag from glass, metal, or plastic, stick a piece of Scotch Trans parent Tape on the price tag, burnish it well, and then pull off the strip of tape. The price tag will come off with the tape.

WD-40. To remove a price tag from glass, metal, or plastic, spray the price sticker with WD-40, let soak for a minute, peel off the sticker, and wipe clean.

Wesson Corn Oil. To remove a price tag, apply a few drops of Wesson Corn Oil to the sticker, wait two minutes for the corn oil to penetrate the paper, and scrape it away.
