Have you ever wondered how to remove the sticky labels and odor from glass pasta jars? I have. First I soak up the jars and the lids in hot water. The label comes right off but the sticky annoying residue remains. I tried scrubbing it off with a dish sponge, my thumb, and it’s quite a labor only to have it spread around even more.
I’ve searched online and read a few tips about it. I’ve read using acetone, WD 40, and lighter fluid will do the job. Well, I don’t want to put my jars on fire. I want to clean them and reuse them to store my sugar, oats, rice, and spices…etc.
