My parents gave me a magnetic spice jar in my stocking this year, as a tester to see if they'd work for me (instead of the giant useless bag of spices I currently have), and it's great. So I bought some more. I'm having a terrible time getting the stickers off the (magnetic) back, though. I found that when I left the sticker on, the jar stuck to the fridge, but peeling off the stickers hasn't really worked either. Anyone have any great ideas for getting the stick off something? I tried nail polish remover, but it just smeared it around.

If I ever get these to work, they're going to be so awesome. But right now they're just annoying and in the way. :P

Here in the US we have a product called "Goo Gone" which is quite effective at getting the sticky stuff off of things. WD-40 might also help. And since oily things seem to take it off, you might try a bit of vegetable oil just to see that moves things at all.

And there's always just soaking it in soapy water...

I also recommend Goo Gone. I think I used to get my at Canadian Tire.

Sometimes getting stickers really wet and then rubbing with olive oil can work. And use a scrubby sponge if the stickiness is really stubborn.

I find that alcohol helps. Well, obviously, it does in general, but I mean with sticky stuff. :-) I think I got my current lot of isopropyl alcohol from an electronics store. Apparently, it doesn't work with all glues, but it's always worked for me.

Whatever, I hope you can get them clean!

Well, even if it didn't get rid of the glue, it might have made you feel better about it. :-)

WD 40 works wonders, as does dish soap.
