How to Remove Stubborn Labels off Bottles

One mans trash is another mans treasure… – Unknown

Sometimes we have those stubborn labels that won’t come off, after we spend forever peeling piece by piece we are left with this sticky residue. We found a way to avoid all that nonsense with some items that you probably already in your house. You can use this trick with any glass bottle.

What you will need:

  • 1/2 cup baking powder
  • Sink full of super hot water
  • 2 Cup Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. Dish Soap

3.You should now see a chemical reaction. Like this…

4.Leave the bottle in the mixture for 1 minutes. The label should slide right off.

You can use the bottles from this hack for many different things. We made a little vase.  Get creative 🙂

  1. Great. I am going to try this. I usually pour a lot of dish washing soap on the label. Then alternate with a wet cloth. But I still have to spend time scraping the label off. Can’t wait to try this. I am going to need several bottles for Christmas gifts this year!
