Repurposing your jars can be super useful and yet we often mistake them for garbage! We wanted to make repurposing your jars very easy so we broke it into 3 EASY steps. It's time we all start turning our trash into our next treasure!
Step 1: Remove the Labels of Your Jars
To start, soak your jar(s) in warm soapy water for a few minutes. This will help to loosen the paper and glue. Remove the label.
Step 2: Remove the Glue!
In a small bowl, mix 1 part cooking oil and 1 part baking soda until combined. The amount of mix you need depends on the number of jars you are repurposing. I usually start with 1 tbsp of cooking oil like vegetable oil and 1 tbsp of baking soda. Cover your jars with this mixture using a towel or basting brush. Let it sit for 20 minutes.
Step 3: Clean Your Jars
Using the same soapy water from Step 1, washing your jar using a dish brush or sponge.
