How To Easily Remove A Sale Sticker From Glass

How To Easily Remove A Sale Sticker From Glass

Remove the Sticker Label

Sticky sticker labels can be annoying. I just bought a glass vase and a glass candle holder for a project. I started to clean up my candle holder and ACK! The sticky sticker label didn’t completely come off the bottom. Now it keeps sticking to the tablecloth. The candle holder stem and bottom have a sticky glue residue left all over it. I hate that!

If you like me, please Pin me!


I tried to soak it off. The only thing that came off is the paper leaving the sticky glue still stuck on the glass. I tried to scrub it off with a sponge and wash rag. Nope! Still being stubborn. I tried to scrape it off with a knife but that only got sticky glue all over the end of the knife.

I understand why we need to have sticker labels. My problem is why are some of them so sticky that they meld to the glass, while, others just pull right off with no trace of glue left.

To Remove Label

You might want to wear gloves to protect your hands.

Alcohol, Candle Holder, Q-Tips

Removing the sticky label is easy. Get a Q-Tip or cloth out.

Soak a Q-Tip in rubbing alcohol until it’s wet.

Moisten Q-Tip

Then start to rub on the sticky area.

Rubbing the glue off

You’ll see that the sticky residue is coming off.


I bought the candle holder from Dollar Tree. It comes in three sizes.

You can also use acetone in place of the rubbing alcohol to remove it from the glass.

If you want to try this on plastic, I would test a small area that will not matter to the function of the plastic. Rubbing alcohol and acetone will sometimes burn holes or melt the plastic. It really depends on the type of plastic that you are using. Please test the plastic first. I’ve lost a really nice water bottle because I didn’t test it first.
