Sorry there is no Etsy post today. I was busy creating my next life altering invention. I should probably patent it before I share it with you but you're my friends and who needs a multimillion dollar sales deal. Not me! I am perfectly happy with the $185 in my checking account and all the coupons spilling out of my purse.
So I bought these .50 cent school boxes that I was going to make into a back to school gift for some friends. I planned on painting and personalizing them like I did with these boxes.
But when I went to pull off that dag-gawn label on the top center, I was left with a sticky mess! I tried hot water and dish soap. I tried Borax. I tried vegetable oil. I tried another handmade soap that is great for getting off craft paints and dyes. NOTHING WORKED!!
Then that teeny tiny lightbulb in my head, that I was sure had burnt out sometime after the birth of my first child, suddenly lit up.
What if I mixed the Borax and the Vegetable Oil? First I poured enough oil over the sticky spots to cover them. Then I topped it with Borax and rubbed it in really well using quite a bit of pressure. I rinsed in warm water and dried with a towel.
HOMEMADE GOO BE GONE!!
Don't be jealous of my genius ability. I am sure this will be the last good idea I have this century. It's also my first.
