Have you ever spotted a great find at the store, brought it home, and then had to deal with a stubborn price tag sticker? Sometimes, if you’re lucky, it comes off seamlessly, but most times it’ll break off piece by piece and leave behind a sticky residue

Quick Overview

How to Use Glass Cleaner to Remove Price Tag Stickers

  • Step 1: Spray the glass cleaner directly onto the price tag.
  • Step 2: Grab a paper towel and cover it.
  • Step 3: Spray the glass cleaner again, this time directly onto the paper towel, and pat down.
  • Step 4: Wait for 15 minutes.
  • Step 5: Wipe away with the paper towel.

Luckily, the internet has a quick fix to this problem and will have you removing price tag stickers and any other kinds of labels in one fell swoop. This video by @thegoochpage shows off a super-easy price tag sticker removal trick that requires just two things that can be found right at home: glass cleaner and a paper towel.

I tried out this trick for myself to see if it really was that simple — and yes, it was! I was surprised to see that using just glass cleaner and a paper towel can wipe out price tag stickers as easily as it did. I can see this trick working for other types of labels, too, like maybe if you’re trying to remove a label off an empty jar you’d like to reuse. (I’m a big fan of reusing Bonne Maman jars.)  

If you’re curious to try, here’s how you can do it too.
