Plastic is a durable material that lasts for many years. However, sticky labels that are stuck on plastic containers often prove difficult to remove without ripping the label and leaving adhesive residue stuck to the plastic surface. Refrain from picking at the label, which might scar some plastic surfaces. Removing labels on plastic is simple once you know the correct procedure and round up some household items. Lay the plastic in a sink if the item is small enough. Pour a small amount of cooking oil over the sticky label, coating the entire surface of the label. Allow the cooking oil to remain on the label for 24 hours. Pick at one edge of the label with your fingernail. As the label comes up, slowly peel it from the plastic. If the label remains stuck to the plastic, pour more cooking oil over the plastic and allow it to remain another 24 hours before peeling. Fill a sink with warm water and 1 tsp. liquid dish soap. Dip a sponge in the soapy solution and wipe it over the plastic. ... more
