Repurposing: How To Remove A Printed-On Label

labels for homemade cleanersThis month we have been working to reduce chemicals in our homes and save money by making our own cleaning products.  We have made an All Purpose Citrus Cleaner, Laundry Detergent, and Wool Dryer Balls.  So, today, we’re going to have a little fun by repurposing some old containers and putting pretty labels on them for our new products.  🙂

The best way to save money and get great containers is to re-purpose containers from commercial products.  If you don’t have any laying around, try your local recycling center.  They are usually glad to let you take things and re-purpose them.  However, one challenge with re-labeling these containers is many manufacturers have started printing their labels directly onto them.  Today, I am going to show you a quick and easy way to remove those printed-on labels, so you can replace them with your fun, homemade labels.

By the way, I have free printable labels available for my subscribers.  Simply print and Modge Podge onto your containers or print them onto 8 1/2″ by 11″ shipping labels, peel and stick.  🙂  Feel free to subscribe in the left sidebar if you’d like to receive our printables.
