Stop everything you're doing and go find something that has a label stuck on it. Because I'm going to show you a tip (that I thought I invented but probably didn't) on how to easily remove a label from almost anything.
Hello lovely black glass receptacle that would be a perfect little vase! How are you?! Oh you're feeling stuck are you? Doomed to the life of being a Grey Suede scented candle when in fact you lost that job ages ago in a fire.
Don't you worry. You're more than a candle holder. You could be anything! You just need to get rid of all the labels other people put on you.
- Heat the label with a hairdryer being careful not to heat the glass up so much that it cracks.
- After 1 minute or so, test the label. It should pull off with no resistance. If it doesn't, heat it a bit more.
- Peel the label off.
That's it. You're done. WOW. Wait. Holddddd on. There's still sticky residue? Ug.
The odd time when you remove a label it will leave residue. This normally doesn't happen BUT if it does:
- Tap the sticky part of the label you removed against the residue to pull it up.
- Rub the area with a cotton ball dipped in olive oil (or any food oil.)

Now you're ready to be whatever you want without any external labels.
But I'm telling you right now, you're gonna be a vase.
