Sticker residue. It doesn’t matter if you’re cleaning up jars to recycle or trying to remove the sticker from a gift, it’s annoying…

Goo Gone works fantastically to remove this sticky mess, but as an imported product it’s not always available in SA (and pricey when it is). With this simple, 2-ingredient DIY trick up your sleeve, however, you’ll always be ready to rumble.

All you need is one part veggie oil to two parts bicarbonate of soda

That’s all! Mix the paste together well, and work lightly into the surface with your fingers or a cloth.

When the last of the residue has lifted, a little soap and water will clean everything right up.

You could even add a few drops of essential oil to the mix if you wanted.
