Adhesive Tags Off Plasticware

This question was submitted from Gail.

“I purchased some plastic glasses and a salad bowl and the store stuck the price labels in a few different spots. It seems like there is nothing that will take the glue off. Could you give me a solution so I don’t mar the surface in any way?”

A great and easy way is to use WD-40. It breaks down adhesive well and you won’t damage the surface.

Also, you could soak the pieces in hot water for a few hours which may loosen the adhesive as well.

Finally, you can purchase a dlimonene based adhesive remover from a professional janitorial supply store. (Check our Find A Pro webpage)

Whenever you use a chemical you are not familiar with, always test a small area first.
