Cleaning baby food jars

21 Jan

I have been saving my baby food jars for a project.  I am not entirely sure what I am going to do with them yet.  I have been looking up all kinds of different things to do with baby food jars and there are some really neat ideas out there!  But before I can use the baby food jars, I need to clean all the sticky stuff off of them.  I usually use Goo Gone or baby oil to clean sticker marks off of things, but I wanted to find a faster way to clean these jars.  I have 30+ baby food jars, and not that I will use them all, but I didn’t want to work at every single one trying to get the sticker stuff off.  So last night I decided to use peanut butter.  In college I worked at the Writing Center my freshman year, and they had me clean off some sticky stuff where they had taken the stickers off of things.  They gave me a jar of peanut butter and told me to spread the peanut butter on the sticky stuff, and then when I came in the next morning, I would be able to wipe it off without much work involved.  Ta Da!  So I decided to use this knowledge I learned in college (woo hoo! I knew it would pay off sometime!) to clean the baby food jars.

Here is a picture of one of them before:

This morning I woke up and wiped off the peanut butter.  Almost everything wiped off clean, except for a little spot here and there on the jars.  I just took my finger nail and scraped it off real easily. So easy and I didn’t have to scrub or put much work into it all!

Ta Da!!

So now I just need to decide what to do with them all!
