Glued on product labels...grrrrrrrr

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I bought a new pooper scooper and litter box.

I cannot get the label glue completely off of them.
I have tried alcohol, fingernail polish remover & soap.

These are items that need to be clear of sticky stuff so that germs do not stick to them and they can be throughly cleaned.

I swore that I would never again buy another product with a label that does not come off easily....
I've been saying that for years and I keep buying them.

There must be a way to get the sticky glue off easily.
How do you remove sticky label glue?

Help please.....

Cooking oil soak, then hot water wash.
After each wash, soak any remaining adhesive with cooking oil until it is all gone.

Any Orange oil based cleaner tends to work really well.

Go out to Walmart or Target and buy this stuff:

I keep a small bottle of it in the house at all times.

Mineral Spirits also works very well.

if you happen to have any lighter fluid, that will work as well.

Nail polish remover with acetone. Acetone will remove just about any sticky substance known to man.

I was always told peanut butter would help. *shrug* Good luck!

We have this little bottle of stuff called "Goo Gone". It's fantastic for exactly those kinds of sticky situations.

My pal Martha Stewart suggested cooking oil which I have used several times (like on glassware) and it works like a charm!! Just rewash the item after removing the label!!

Yep. We used to keep a bottle of the Goo Gone under the counter when I worked retail the clean up sticky messes and whatnot with. Added bonus - it smells like yummy oranges.

I just had the same problem with the swinging door on our new litter box. The whole panel was a big sticker. And the goo gone did not work completely, it was still tacky. And I was worried their fur would get stuck to it....

Goo Gone!!! I love the stuff!

I used oil today for a small item with a sticky label but it still left a little residue.
I dread trying the cat litter box.
What a mess that will be.
I may just return it and find something else.

Why don't the companies that put those horrible sticky labels on items that must be clean & free of sticky goo spend 1 billionth of a cent more for a glue that comes off easily?

It's maddening.
