Laundry Hack: Sticker Removal

Have you ever washed something and accidentally left the tag on? UGH!!!  I totally thought my new shirt was ruined!  I tried and tried to peel it off, but nothing was working!  I even did my best to be patient and pick it off, but the glue was left!  I knew there HAD to be an easier way to get it off!!!  ENTER PINTEREST…

Did I mention that I LOVE Pinterest??

Well, someone on Pinterest suggested dousing the sticker and fabric in Lemon essential oil, so I looked and I had a bottle in my bathroom closet!!

After getting everything wet and greasy, the sticker and glue just peels right off!!  It works like magic!!  Did I mention that my laundry room smelled really good too??  Well, as greasy as the spot was, I was concerned that the fabric would now have a big old grease spot.  I’m not sure which was worse, a leftover sticker or a grease spot….

Just in case, I squirted a little Dawn dish washing detergent on the spot and rewashed the shirt.

and BOOM…the shirt is perfect!!  Just had to share this hack- it’s a good one!!

Thanks for joining me on this Thursday night!!  Have a SUPER weekend!!!
