DIY Goo Gone really works! It’s great for removing adhesives, such as glue and stickers, from the surface of glass jars. It also works as a great exfoliant! All you need is equal parts baking soda and coconut oil, and a couple drops of sweet orange oil. Remove as much of the sticker as you can before hand, then rub in the diy goo gone with a cloth or your fingers. The baking soda acts as an abrasive whilst the oil softens and unseals the adhesives hold on the surfaces. Once you remove the adhesive completely, just wash with soapy water and voila, you’re done! If you have any left over, use as exfoliant or store away in tightly sealed container for next time.
