I bet you have this DIY Adhesive Remover in your kitchen. Right. Now.
Equal parts olive oil and baking soda, that’s it. (I bet any oil would work.)
If you have kids, buy cheap photo frames, dishes or all of the above, at some point you will have ooey gooey sticker gunk you want to get rid of. If it’s my house that means almost everyday.
I find a sticker stuck on the floor, wall, bed frame, desk, mirrors…daily. If it’s solid and smooth, at some point my kids have probably honored it with a Mickey Mouse or Dora sticker. Guaranteed.
So, this happened…
While not unusual in this house…definitely more than I’m used to. Maybe she was leaving a path to find her way back?
Besides the fact that the official sticker remover product in the store cost almost 6 bucks…this was truly frightening. A warning on the front of the package reads, “DANGER: Harmful or fatal if swallowed.” Just having the product in the house made me uneasy and knowing I would use it on such a large portion of flooring with a toddler that puts everything in her mouth was a no-go.
Best part of this DIY! Make them clean up after themselves! This is my two year old helping to remove her work of art. Using your olive oil/baking soda combo cover the adhesive completely and than walk away.
Give it at least 20 minutes to soak through. If you can leave it longer, even better. Let the product do the work.
After it’s completely soaked use the rough side of a sponge and a little water to wipe it away. Free and so much safer!
