Removing glue from plastic

It may have happened to you that after removing the price tag from the plastic object, its effects and residues remained on the object, and if the quality of the glue used is high, it is not possible to remove the glue from the object easily.
There are many home tricks to solve this problem, and we will introduce you to some of them in this article.
For starters, you can try a mixture of baking soda and oil, which works on all types of glue, or other household products like vinegar or even peanut butter. If all else fails, choose a harsh cleaning product to remove the adhesive.

Using baking soda and oil

Removing glue from plastic

Step 1
Mix equal amounts of oil and baking soda in a small bowl to form a paste. You can use any type of oil, such as coconut or olive oil, canola oil, vegetable oil, or sunflower oil. The baking soda acts as a peeler to remove the glue.
The amount of your mixture depends on the size of the glue spot. For glue left on a small plastic bottle, for example, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda and 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of oil should work.
When it is important for you that the object does not smell of oil and smells good, mix a few drops of essential oil with cooking oil. Mint, lavender or lemon are also effective to eliminate bad odor.
The best oil when the adhesive strength is high is coconut oil because it has more fat than olive oil and is better for dissolving stubborn glue.
Step 2
Apply the mixture to the area where the glue is. Use your hands to apply the baking soda and oil, making sure to saturate all of the glue by rubbing in small circles. Continue until the sticky area is completely covered.
If your skin is sensitive, do this with gloves or a cloth so that the baking soda does not dry your skin.
Step 3
Let the mixture sit on the surface for 30 minutes. This allows the baking soda and oil to soften the glue and make it easier to remove. The longer you leave the mixture on, the easier the glue will come off.
Step 4
If you have a kitchen sponge, use the abrasive side of it. Continue doing this until the effects of the glue are completely gone.
If the glue doesn’t come off, apply more baking soda and oil, then let it sit for another 30 minutes and try to remove it again.

Do not use a dishwashing wire or a rough object for this, or do it slowly and carefully, as rough objects will scratch the plastic surface.
Step 5
Wash the plastic with soap and warm water. This will remove any sticky or oily residue. Clean the plastic using a damp cloth with soap, then rinse until it is no longer sticky or greasy.
Dry the plastic with a clean cloth or allow it to air dry after washing thoroughly.

Use vinegar

Step 1
For glue that hasn’t fully set, or if you’ve already softened it with a liquid or oil mixture, use a plastic scraper to remove the residue.
Be careful not to scratch the plastic.
You can use a plastic knife or the edge of an old credit card that you no longer use.
Avoid using sharp objects or anything metal like a razor, as it may damage the plastic.

Step 2
If possible, soak the object in vinegar to dissolve the glue. If this is not possible, dip a cloth or paper towel in vinegar and place it on the glue. Leave it on for 15-30 minutes, then wipe off any loose residue.
To remove the smell of vinegar, wash the plastic with warm water and soap.

Alcohol use

Alcohol is effective as a chemical-free solution for hard-to-remove glue. Dip a cotton ball in the liquid, then apply it to the glue. By rubbing the remaining area, it should be pulled up. Keep rubbing it until all the glue is removed and reapply the liquid if needed.
You can use hand sanitizer or acetone.
To remove strong adhesives with alcohol, allow the liquid to sit on the adhesive for 15 to 30 minutes to dissolve before attempting to wash it off.

Using mayonnaise or peanut butter

If your plastic is not porous, you can use mayonnaise or peanut butter. Because both of these foods are primarily fat, they contain a lot of oil that can penetrate porous plastic and stain it.
For stronger plastics, cover the adhesive area with a thick layer of mayonnaise or peanut butter, then let it sit for 30 minutes and then remove.
If you’re not sure if your plastic is porous, test a small spot. Apply some mayonnaise or peanut butter and wait half an hour. If you notice a stain, try another method to remove the glue.

Using adhesive cleaners

If your glue stain is too difficult to remove with the above methods, purchase and use a cleaner. Special adhesive removal products, such as WD-40, are very
effective at removing adhesives from plastic. Follow the directions on the package to make sure you use it safely and correctly.
