How To Remove Labels

While applying your custom labels to products that you've produced yourself is a popular option, many of you will will choose to remove the labels from products that you've purchased locally, and swap them with custom labels of your choice. While it may sound difficult, removing the label from a bottle or jar is actually quite simple with a little patience and a couple of everyday household items.

A quick search of the web will reveal a variety of different methods for removing labels. A recent article on Popular Mechanics put several of these methods to the test, and determined that the following option is the most effective. Best of all, this method can be performed on a full bottle or jar without negatively affecting the quality of the contents. See the following directions:

You Will Need: A sink or bucket, baking soda, a rag, a towel (optional: steel wool)

  1. Soak the label portion of the bottle or jar in room temperature water and 5-10 tablespoons of baking soda for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the bottle or jar from the water, and wipe the label off with a rag. If any of the label still remains, use a fingernail or steel wool to remove the rest.
  3. Once the bottle or jar is clean, wipe it with a towel and allow it to completely dry and acclimiatize to room temperature before applying your new label.
