How to Remove Label from a Jar

I read about some crazy methods for removing labels from jars involving peanut butter and WD-40. The idea of slathering my jar with peanut butter seemed not only wasteful but also messy. And WD-40 has a strong chemical smell. I decided to try good old-fashioned soaking and elbow grease.

Step 1: Soak jar in warm soapy water.

Step 2: Scratch off glue with pot scraper
or credit card. Repeat scraping
and soaking as necessary.

Step 3: Clean with rubbing alcohol.

Step 4: Take out medium-grain sandpaper.

Step 5: Sand off paint from jar lid.

Hurray!
