Hi all there,
Maybe this is off topic but I wonder how can I remove the labels from
Some labels are quite easily removed with hot water (i.e. Nutella glass
:-)), some remain sticked to the glass even if I let the container boil
Which kind of glue do they use in this case?
How can I remove it?
Alas, not for all labels.
Some seem to be glued on with epoxy or something - it doesn't soften
with heat, or succum to your mere plant oils.
I've found that a nice sharp knife, applied so that the edge is almost
parallel to the glass, in a whittling motion works well.
I haven't had experience of every label in the world so I can't disagree. I
never use heat. My gentle way is worth a try before taking physical action
though, I think. The epoxy type ones must be quite unusual.
It must be difficult to get every trace off like that.
I use lighter fluid to remove sticky label glue (after the label has been
soaked off). A ballpoint pen stain devil may do the trick too. If it is
hot glue (hard plastic feeling, rather than sticky gum) it should scrape off
in one lump with a knife.
