If you got something new for Christmas, you probably want to give it pride of place, but a few leftover sticky labels can really ruin the look.
While the price label is necessary in a store for information and a barcode, it’s best to remove it when you’re using it at home.
But sometimes the labels are hard to pick off.
Some suggest soaking them in hot water but it does involve a bit of effort.
One woman was come up with a much quicker solution to remove hers.
Posting on TikTok , Lexie Byers explained how she uses a strip of tape to ‘wax it off’.
‘I have a life hack that’s going to blow your mind. My mum taught me this, mum’s know everything,’ she said.
She has a stack of white tumbler cups with stickers on the bottom that she was going to stick in the dishwasher but she wanted to remove the tags first.
She starts by ripping off tape from her dispenser, then presses it onto the label, leaving a tab at the end.
Lexie pulls the tab, lifting the whole thing quickly, like you would with a wax strip, and shows how she removes all the stickers in seconds.
‘Then you can peel it off and do it all over again. Brilliant,’ she said.
Some loved the hack and said it would make the whole process much quicker.
‘You’ve probably saved billions in lost time’, one person commented
‘The amount of hours that I’ve sat going to WAR with those stickers’, another said.
But others did point out that it sadly only works on plastic stickers and you’ll have to try other methods for paper ones.
One comment said: ‘Those only come off easily because those aren’t the paper tags.’
