How To Remove All Label Residue from Your Products Properly

A sticker label serves as an identifier for a brand. A sticker label can be found on practically any container for a consumer product, including bottles and jars. Many people remove the product labels from these containers to repurpose them for personal use.

However, removing a sticker is one thing; removing any adhesive residue left behind is quite another. Getting rid of label residue can be difficult, even more so if the label is made of a durable material and adhered to a tough surface. Consult a printing london expert for assistance with custom label and sticker printing in the UK.

Utilising the Appropriate Cleaning Materials

We've compiled a list of tools for removing product label residue. The following are some prominent choices for your cleaning inventory:

Rubbing Alcohol: Rubbing alcohol works well for removing label residue from a variety of surfaces, including plastic, glass, and wood. To soften the adhesive on more durable labels, place a moist rag or cloth over the label for a few minutes. After that, you can gently peel it away from the sides using a razor or other sharp-edged tool.

Water: Fill the sink halfway with hot water and add dish soap. Submerge the product and let it in the water for at least 15 minutes (the water should not be too hot), though the time required will vary depending on the adhesive strength of the label. Once complete, carefully pull the label away from a corner. You should now be able to wipe away any remaining residue with a clean cloth.

Vinegar: Make a large quantity of vinegar and warm it without boiling it. Following that, either immerse the jar in vinegar or soak a cloth in vinegar and apply it to the label. Peel the label from a corner and scrape away any remaining residue with a razor.

Hairdryer: Using a hairdryer, set it to warm and heat the area surrounding the label for approximately one minute. The key to this technique is the heat generated by the adhesive. Remove the label and scrape away any remaining residue with a razor.

Goo Gone Spray: Using a goo gone spray to remove sticker label residue is effective. To begin, spray it over the affected area and then use a towel for at least 15 minutes. After removing the label from the corners, scrape or scour any remaining residue with a razor or a sponge.

Cleaning Specific Surfaces of Residue

Now that you have a rough concept of the materials that can be used to remove sticker residue, it's time to get specific. The following are some of the most often used surfaces for custom label printing in London:

Generally, plastic is a difficult surface for product labels to adhere to. As a result, manufacturers prescribe several methods to remove them, including nail polish remover.

While glass is one of the more durable surfaces for product labels, it is also one of the easiest to remove labels from. Generally, all that is required is to immerse them in warm, soap less water.

Ceramic/Porcelain: Paper labels are frequently used on ceramic surfaces. They're typically simple to remove but maytear halfway through, leaving a sticky surface behind. The best item to use on these surfaces is vinegar.

Metal/Tin: The simplest approach to remove stickers and remnants of label residue from metal or glossy surfaces is to soak them in a moist rag and let them alone until the adhesive weakens.


While sticker labels are an effective indicator, consumers will want to remove them to reuse a product container. You should utilise the products described above to prevent spending an inordinate amount of time manually removing remaining adhesive.
