This worked for me when scrubbing for hours wouldn't!!!!
Make and share this Remove Sticker Glue from Steel Pots recipe from Food.com.
- 1 tablespoon canola oil (maybe other oils will work but don't rate it on other ones if it doesn't work!)
- 1 pot with annoying glue
- Rub canola oil onto problem spot.
- Leave 5 minutes.
- Rub off with fingers/sponge/etc.
- Feel relived!
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.
