Removing Sticker Residue From Glass
Recently, I bought a photo frame that had one of those annoying stickers on the glass, so I went looking for a method to remove it on the boards. I found one, but when I went back to post it here, I couldn’t find it again. Not sure why, but the method involved using a hair dryer and vinegar.
I did, however, find many claims on Pinterest that you could remove sticker residue using peanut butter, but then, what do you use to remove the peanut butter residue? The hair dryer/vinegar method just seemed a lot easier.
I had removed most of the sticker before realizing that I needed any tools.
Then, I took a hair dryer, and blew hot air onto the last remnants of the sticker to soften them.
After a minute or two under the heat, I used a metal spatula to scrape the remnants from the glass.
But that still left me with smeary-looking residue.
So I sprayed a little vinegar onto that,
and rubbed with a clean soft cloth.
That’s really useful! I hate when you buy a new dish and it has a stubborn sticker on it. Usually I just stick it in a dishwasher, and hope it softens up, but this seems muuuuch easier.
I know! Where has this method been all my life? I think this would be a great way to remove labels from jars as well. Then you can recycle them to use for other Pinterest projects.
Thanks for stopping by!
