  • Skin So Soft works unbelievably!! If you dont have any then baby oil is the next best thing.

  • Peanut Butter. The oils on in the peanut butter will make the lable fall right off.

  • WD40 makes a great little "pen". It's easy for oiling door hinges and such, but it's great for removing label adhesive.
    There is also Goof Off or Goop Off, another remover out there. The wd40 pen is awesome though, I've used it so much since getting it.

  • Goo Gone and WD40 will both work well.
