This affordable degreaser will get rid of those sticky adhesives so you can repurpose your glass jars. It can also be used on kitchen cabinets or inside ovens!
DIY Goo Gone
Combine your favorite kitchen oil with baking soda and you’ve got a multi-purpose homemade degreaser and anti-adhesive formula!
DIY Goo Gone Recipe
- 1 part kitchen oil (I use olive oil)
- 2 parts baking soda
Combine in a small bowl and stir to make a paste. You can always add a few drops of essential oil for added cleaning power. Suggested essential oils include lemon, orange, rosemary, and tea tree oil.
Directions for Adhesive Remover
- Soak jar overnight in warm water to loosen the adhesive.
- Scrape off as much of the adhesive as you can.
- Apply the Goo Gone with your fingers.
- Rub thoroughly.
- Rinse with warm water.
- Repeat if needed.
Alternative Uses for DIY Goo Gone
I love this paste for any type of grime. I use it on kitchen cabinets, the stovetop, and my oven!
Directions for DIY Goo Gone Oven Cleaner
Warm the oven before applying the paste. Once you apply, allow it to sit for a few minutes before scrubbing. This takes a bit of muscle power, but it sure beats the hazards that come with the self-cleaning function. (See What Are the Dangers of a Self-Cleaning Oven?)
Chances are you have both ingredients on hand. Why not give DIY Goo Gone a try?
