Well, I love stickers as prizes more than I love giving my children a constant stream of candy or cheap plastic junk that will break in two seconds, only to be found by my bare feet at two am. But stickers on the kids TKD uniforms are the ban of my exisitence. Even if I take them off before the laundry, they leave a goopy residue that I cannot get off.
That is, before I turned to Pinterest and found a Homemade Goo-Be-Gone recipe.
An article of clothing or whatever with sticky goo from stickers on it
a small bowl
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking soda
a paper towel or old tooth brush
The the bowl, mix the oil and the baking soda.
The goo should clump up and start peeling off. The black writing you see on the background is my child's name, written in Korean.
As soon as I had the goo removed, I popped the uniform in the wash. They came out nice and clean!
*Note: I have not tried this with other oils. I imagine it would be okay but, as always, spot check before you do the whole thing!
