how can I remove that glue?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I bought myself a new stovetop kettle. Problem is, it's a cheap one that didn't come in a box so it had a sticky label on it instead... on the bottom of the kettle. I managed to remove the paper part of the label but the glue is still on there
Is there a way of removing that glue? I know there are products made especially for that (like Goo Gone and such) but I don't have any and the stores are closed. Anything else I can do?
I don't think I want to put the kettle on the stove with the glue still on there. Might be toxic or something.

Orange oil, in lieu of that, vegetable oil, just rub it off then wash.

I was going to say vegetable oil too. You could also try butter.

Which brings me to my question - why do people have those kinds of kettles? Why not use an electric kettle? It's so much easier and energy efficient. I always see them on tv in American shows, and they bug me!

PS - some tea sounds nice though! will you be serving some fresh baked muffins?

Probably not as energy efficient as a gas stove
I actually like the whistling stove top kettles.

You know, I do like the sound they make. It seems comfortingly old-fashioned. I would just worry about leaving the stove on.

But that's why they make sounds, so space cadets like me don't forget that they're on

I bought a stove-top one because I don't have much room on the counter for an electric one (but there's always room on the stove since I never use the 4 elements at the same time) and the electrical outlets are not all that easy to access.

Ok, ok, but what about in the movies where someone's been murdered/knocked out and you know something's wrong 'cos the kettle is left unattended on the stove. Now, if they'd had the plug-in one, they could go ahead and get murdered and not have the house burn down while they're at it.
Time for a soothing tea I think.

We have an electric kettle and I have to tell you, I love it! it's fast, and easy to use! I have a kitty kettle but I'll never use it because I love my electric kettle more!!!! ( and I really don't want to ruin the kitty kettle!)

WD-40 also removes glue, tar, or anything else that's sticky.

Nailpolish remover does too

I just love the old fashionedness of the stove top tea kettles. I use an electric one too though!!
