WOW! Okay, I had an old label from 30 years ago baked on my cup cake pan. I soaked it with the vegetable oil for the required time. With very little effort I was able to scrape it off with my fingernail. I am very impressed! So now I feel invincible against any future sticker glue! Bring it on! Thank you Ummbinat for posting this! No more will I have to listen to the words from my DH about how he cannot believe I didn't take the stickers off of new steel items. BTW: It works on glassware too! Made for Veg 'N Swap tag 37.

I love these safe, simple solutions to household problems! If the glue is really dried on, it may take longer than 5 minutes, but the result is well worth it! Thanks for posting!

A tried and true method! But don't waste your good culinary-grade oil-- this calls for 99 cent-store canola.

Hi! Thaks for posting this here!
This works very well! If it is too hard I brush the oil and I heat with the hairdryer. After this treatment the glue is softer and you can remove it!
Once we had to remove the rest from the glue of a fitted carpet on an old wooden windowsill (I hate fitted carpets!). I confess we used a lot of oil, but at the end the wood was intact and glue-free! We used the airdryer for this!
