Am I the only one who removes labels from jars?

9 years ago

I like keeping jars, and am a stickler for removing the labels. I hate labels on containers that I'm keeping. I'll soak and scrub and use goo-gone (sparingly) till that sucker is spotless.

I picked up several large square buckets (26lb) that soft margarine comes in. The first 5 buckets I scrubbed and scraped with a putty knife, and soaked to get the label off. Some still have a bit of sticky residue (which I hate).

I've got 5 buckets here that I haven't removed the labels.

Am I too anal, or do you, like me, remove all the labels?
