Essential Oil for the Win

I can’t stand those annoying price stickers that stores stick on glass objects as if to taunt the buyer, “Ha! Bet you the price of the item that you’ll never get that stickem totally off!” Ergh. Evil sticky goo stuff. I can usually get it totally off without a trace, but every once in a while I get an item that make me want to scream.

Last week I bought a pair of cruets with the most awful and pesky stickem ever. Seriously. Soap, hot water, lots of soaking, scrubbing with rag, plastic scrubbie, thumb, fingernail, etc. No avail. A sticky residue and ugly smudge :-P. Finally in desperation I whipped out my trusty bottle of lemon essential oil, dabbed some on a napkin, and that pesky sticky residue was gone in the work of an instant! No hard rubbing, just a smooth glide and it was off. I’ll have to remember that trick. . .

    Hm. Don’t know if I’ll have ever just have lemon essential oil laying around the house. But I’ll keep it in mind in case. 🙂
