I love to reuse/repurpose glass jars/bottles. It may be just because of the size or shape or for some craft and sometimes even as storage for pantry. But the labels on them can be quite annoying 😦
So, Pinterest has countless ideas and tips on how to remove them -but for me the most important was mess free. I tried couple of them but the one I am going to share is absolutely “ZERO” effort.
Isn’t that awesome – the glass bottle is absolutely clean and looks new 🙂
This magic lotion is absolutely mess free and the stickers slide off without leaving any residue on the bottle.
To make the lotion you need –
1 tsp – liquid Dish soap
1/4 cup – Baking soda
1/4 cup – Vinegar
Enough water depending on the size of the bottle/jar
And all you have to do is –
Fill your sink or a container big enough to submerge the bottle with hot hot water. Add liquid dish soap and give it a gently mix. Then add baking soda and vinegar.Once you add vinegar it will get fizzy for couple of seconds and that’s when the magic begins.
And Tadahhh….they are ready to use 🙂
You can use them to store homemade lemonade or get inspired from pinterest and upcycle them for some fun home decor.
Here is a shampoo bottle that was up cycled couple of years ago to a cute vase using some spray paint 🙂
