How To Easily Remove Labels: It does work if you want to wipe it down few time with towel paper the best idea is just to allow the jar to soak in water all night then remove the label by scrapping it with knife then use heavy duty sponge to scrape the glue off
Make a Goo Gone alternative that works just as well with-out the chemicals and smells. Mix two parts vegetable oil, any kind, with one part baking soda. The oil loosens the gluey muck while the baking soda gently abrades the glue and then you can wipe it away. Clean with soapy water and a hot water rinse. Viola!
