Homemade Goo Gone | Remove Labels, Residue AND Print!

Homemade Goo Gone

Jamie here, today I’m going to share one of my favorite new cleaning tips – this Homemade Goo Gone recipe!

I like to re-use containers for crafts and whatnot (like this Play-Doh Bank and Play-Doh Bud Vase) – but those darn sticky labels are murder to remove.  You could scrub that leftover goo with dish soap all day, and only end up with a rag’s worth of lint stuck to your jar.  (For the record, fuzzy mason jars are NOT cute for summer tea glasses.)

So here’s a recipe for Homemade Goo Gone using just two ingredients that I guarantee are in your kitchen already (And if they’re not, they should be – so go buy some!) :)

You’ll need

  • 1 Part Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Parts Baking Soda

Directions:

  1. Use a spoon to mash the baking soda into the oil until it’s a thick, crumbly paste (Think dried-up icing).
  2. Now after you’ve removed as much of the label as you can, slather the paste on and let is sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. Get a toothbrush, old rag or just your finger, and rub/scrub until the label is completely gone.  This homemade goo gone also takes ink clean off!
