    Question Question About Cleaning Jars......

    How do you get all of that glue off the mayo, pickle, and other jars?

    I can't get some of it off no matter how hard I scrub and also using scalding hot water.

    Also what do you use to make sure all of the pickle smell is gone?

    I want to make a bunch of these gift jars. BTW, I love all of your ideas!

    I soak them in hot, soapy water...... The label usually peels right off of glass and I don't have problems with the glue... When the glue won't come off, I use steel wool.. The pickle smell does not permeate the glass and will be gone when washed in hot, soapy water..... Hope this helps..... BTW, I use jars from mayo, pickles, ect for crafts and gifts in a jar.....

    If you have some of that really hard to remove glue, soak it in white vinager.....

    if i can't get the glue off, i rub baby oil on it and let it soak. i read this tip somewhere and it really works!! but let it soak for a little while. i had a pickle jar i had painted a couple weeks ago, and after many many washings, it still smelled a litttle like pickle juice!
    hope this helps. good luck!
