Peanut Butter?? Not just for PBJ's....

I made homemade potpourri this year as part of our Christmas present to all of the married couples in our families.  I bought a few spices at Trader Joe's and I LOVED the shape & style of the jars!!  They were the perfect size for storing some of my scrapbooking supplies....BUT they all had labels on them!

I soaked them in hot water, and a lot of the paper came off....but not the sticky stuff...

I then washed them multiple times in the dishwater....

NOPE!

Finally, I googled it...and found ALL SORTS OF IDEAS!!

The only supply we actually had (outta the MULTIPLE great ideas) was peanut butter!

....SooooOOOooo....I smeared it all over the jars......


...my husband was in awe....

Actually, his exact words were, "I hope this works...that could make a LOT of peanut butter sandwiches!"

{Sigh.....MEN!}

I let it sit for two days...JUST in case....cuz, ya know, I was at my WITS end!

....and WA-LAH....


No more stickiness!!

Now, I need to get them decorated and then FILL them with my scrapbooking supplies!!

WD 40 will take it off too. Read up on this product, it will take a lot of residue of, even shoe marks and spots on the carpet. :) Thanks DH!
