Tuesday's Tips & Tricks: Unique Kitchen Tool

 My sister Shelley, was in charge of the dessert table at our Easter dinner.

You are never too old to learn something new from your mom!  I spent Easter with my family in Florida this year.  The day before Easter, my mom prepared some recipes ahead of time, set the dinning room table, and pulled out all the serving dishes she was planning on using for the dinner.

It doesn't matter how many dishes you have, it seems you always need at least one more.  My mom was peeling the price tags off of the new dishes she had purchased, when she came to one that was really stuck.  She went to the bathroom and grabbed the blow dryer.  After a couple of seconds of blow drying the sticker, it peeled right off.


I decided to put this method to a test at my own home.  I had a sticker that was really stuck to a soup mug and I couldn't get it off.  I even ran it in the dishwasher, and it still would not come off.


I put my blow dryer on the high heat, and let it sit on the sticker for less than one minute. 


And low and behold, it peeled right off!


Thanks Mom, for another great tip!

    1. I was really excited when I saw that it worked not just on new stickers, but also on the old stickers that I could not get off before.

    1. We ate more of the fruit than we did the other desserts. My sister laughed about all the work she had put into the desserts and we didn't hardly eat them.

  5. And all this time I've used messy WD40 and so forth. Great hair dryer trip and I have to go buy something tomorrow and try it! lol

    When I first saw the photo at the top of your post, I kept studying it trying to figure out why you looked just a little different. I thought maybe it was your hair, then I thought it must be different eye make-up. Then I saw below it where you said it was your sister... If I had just looked there first, I wouldn't have worried my poor little mind so much!

    1. A lot of people get my sister and I confused. It makes her really mad, because I am four years older than she is. lol

  9. What a useful tip, I hate it when I cannot get off price tags. Maybe not such a good idea on plastic though unless you are careful or the plastic is quite hard. Thanks for this one Diane
