Here's how to get sticker residue off of clothes- even if they've been washed with the sticker still on!
You can remove sticker residue from clothes using things you probably have around the house already!
...and put it through the dryer?
I just found out how to get sticker residue off a shirt after washing it and I never would've guessed that this would work!

So, Katrina put a sticker on my T shirt one day & I totally forgot about it, washed the t shirt, and put it in the dryer. Then when it was time to fold & put it away, I found a very difficult-to-remove mess of sticker goo on the front of it!
I tried washing it again, without drying, to see if that would loosen it up, and it sure didn't!
So, I started googling and among suggestions, I found peanut butter. So, I gave it a whirl!
How to Remove Sticky Residue From Clothes
I started by spreading it on like a sandwich.
(Ken walked in the room to see what I was doing & just started laughing ;)
I let it sit for a few minutes (not too long- I couldn't wait to test this out!), and took an old toothbrush to it, giving it a good scrub.
I scrubbed until the peanut butter and some sticker residue had gotten all stuck up in the brush (you can't see it all in this pic, cuz I'd already rinsed it a bit)
Then I thought I'd help the greasy peanut butter along with some soap:
Scrubbed it with the tooth brush again, and then put it in the wash.
It came out good as new! I'm so happy!
What an easy way to deal with this problem!
(Now that I know how to remove stickers from clothes, I tried this method again on sticker residue on plastic containers, and it works just as well!)
