Adhesive Remover Homemade Goo Gone

Adhesive Remover: Homemade Goo Gone

This adhesive remover recipe is a natural homemade goo gone that delivers the same results without all the harsh chemical additives. Use with confidence.







  1. Remove as much of the label or sticker as you can before beginning. Combine ingredients in a small bowl and mash together with a spoon or small spatula until it forms a thick paste.
  2. Apply adhesive remover with fingers or a cloth, rubbing it in until label/sticker is completely gone.
  3. Wash with warm water and soap to remove any leftover goop or oil.

Voila! The label is gone. (Just so you know how well this stuff works, I couldn't tell where the label had been when I went to take the "after" picture. I think I showed you the wrong side - ha!)

The best part - I don't have to recycle glass containers just because I'm dreading the hassle of removing the labels. Now, if I could only find more space to keep my glass jar hoard.

You can store your adhesive remover in a sealed container and keep for later use.


This DIY adhesive remover also makes a fabulous moisturizing facial exfoliant! With the addition of sweet orange essential oil, it's perfect for oily skin.
