How can you get the sticky part from a label off a bowl?

How can you get the sticky part from a label off a bowl? Topic: How can you get the sticky part from a label off a bowl?

Question: I have a stainless steel bowl that I took the labels off, however, the one on the inside looked like it would come off easily but it didn't. So I soaked it in warm water twice and most of the label came off but there is still sticky residue that is left behind. If it were on the outside of the bowl I wouldn't mind but it's on the inside where I will be preparing food so I'd like to make sure it's gone. Like I said, I soaked it in warm water twice, the 2nd time I used one of those sponges with the scrubber on the back, used soap, etc. Thanks for your help!

I don't recommend harsh solvents on stainless steel. Gasoline and nail polish remover could ruin the bowl. So could Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. You can remove that residue with plain old oil...either cooking oil or baby oil. Douse a paper towel with the oil and press the paper towel onto the sticky spot. Let that sit for about an hour. The residue should roll right off with your fingernail. Then wash the bowl with dish washing liquid and water. Rinse well...and you're done. -

the most important for overall health is trans fat (you should keep those to as close to zero as possible) If you're trying to lose weight (i.e. fat) you should look at sugar and fat content. Also you want to limit your overall carbs (or better yet, only eat carbs from fruits and whole grains). You should read the ingredients and refrain buying items where HFCS (High Fructose Corn syrup) is one of the first ingredients. One note: the % are based on a USRDA (U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance) for a 2000 calorie diet. I'd take the % for carbs and fat and try to stay <50% for the day. Take the protein % and at least double it.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information. I've never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise. Get started today!

You can get the sticky residue off with fingernail polish remover or lighter fluid. Wash bowl thoroughly afterwards and you're good to go. My mom told me to always keep a can of lighter fluid on my laundry shelf to get rid of grease spots on clothing. It works.

You can use any solvent, like WD40. That will remove any residue. Of course, wash it thoroughly afterward.

Dust is not going to take care of this problem. It can get a lot of stuff out of fur, but not sticky adhesives. If it was an adult chinchilla, I would say to water bathe with a baby type shampoo and thoroughly dry him/her, but if you try that with a 3 day old kit, you will most likely end up killing it. This is just a bad situation. How on earth did a 3 day old kit get out of its cage in order TO walk into a sticky pad meant for catching pests? Is the cage not kit safe? Was this a surprise litter? If it was me, I would contact the company and explain the situation to them. Tell them how incredibly delicate a chinchilla is, the fact that it's only 3 days old, and see if they have any safe solutions. I would be worried not only for the kit, but also for the mom. The mom's natural instinct is going to be to try and bathe this kit clean, thereby ingesting this nasty adhesive crap that's stuck all over her the baby. I would very, very concerned that this would cause a blockage in her intestines if she ingested too much, put her off her feed, cause her to turn on the kit - any number of things.

I'm going to cross post this there and hopefully get some more answers for you because I am just about at a loss here for a safe way to clean this poor baby up. Maybe someone there will have more insights that they can share. A lot of people there have had a lot of experience with pretty much anything you can think of, so maybe someone has something better they can recommend. I have to say that for me, personally, this is a first. Here is a link to the actual question: http://www.chins-n-hedgies.com/forums/sh...
