How to Remove a Sticker from Plastic

Earlier this year I posted about how to remove washed-on sticker residue from clothing.
Today I wanted to share something very similar that also worked!

I have a plastic container that came with a sticker label on the lid. I thought it would just come off with washing, so I didn't bother to take it off. I have since washed it many times (by hand and in the dishwasher) and that darn sticker will NOT wash off!

So, I tried the peanut butter method & it's now good as new!

DIY Sticker Adhesive Removal

It's so easy! Here's what you do:

1. Start with hard-to-remove sticker on plastic container.

2. Spread peanut butter over the sticker.

3. Let it sit for a little while (as long as you want- a minute, or a long time if you want to just leave it and come back to it later)

4. Start scrubbing with a scrub brush. (the one I used cost $1 at the dollar store ;)
Your brush will probably get all gunked up with peanut butter- just rinse it out and continue, if it gets difficult to keep going with all of that gunk in the bristles ;)

It'll come off really easily! Follow up by washing regularly to get the peanut butter off, and perhaps a few small pieces of leftover sticker, and you're done! :)
