How do I get residue from a sticker off of food bowls I have recently bought?

I have recently bought some food bowls from Target. They're plastic chip bowls but they manufacturer placed a sticker inside it and it didn't come off easily (I had to drown it in soap and water to get it off) and now the sticky residue is left. How do I get that off so I can actually use the bowl? I seem to remember reading a remedy from Good Housekeeping but I don't remember what it is.

Help please!

  • Vegetable oil sometimes helps remove pesky sticker glue.

  • rubbing alcohol - put it on a napkin/papertowel and rub it until the sticky is gone

  • Try soaking them in hot water, they should slide right off. Or, you can spray WD-40 on them, take them off,and then wash the bowl real well,to get the spray off them.

  • Sometimes putting liquid dish soap directly on it works too. GL It's such a pain!

  • I've done the dish soap, it didn't work. I'll try the vegetable oil bc I actually have it available. Would Apple Cider Vinegar work?
