Craft tip today--removing price ticket residue quickly and easily




Ever buy something on impulse (yes impulse is my middle name) just because you love it. Then when you get the item home and try peeling off the price ticket do you find that it just leaves a sticky residue? I don't know why they use stickers like that but there is nothing worse than that sticky, gummy gooey mess left behind.  You try washing (if it's something that is washable) and nail polish remover and find that the stickiness simply spreads! 

Since you love it--banish that thought of returning it.  You can get that sticky mess off very easily.

Go to your pantry and get a jar of peanut butter.  Yes I said peanut butter. Rub a glob of peanut butter over the sticky residue and wipe off with a paper towel.  You may have to repeat this once more but the sticky mess will disappear like magic!

So the next time you are faced with one of those fiendish stubborn price tickets get out the Jiff, and the problem is solved--in a Jiff.
