Recently my daughter received a sticker at the dentist, and put it on her shirt. She was wearing a fleece pullover. Without noticing the sticker, I put the fleece through the wash. The sticker was spot-welded to that shirt!! I figured it was a loss, but thought I'd ask my connections on Facebook if they had any ideas before I threw the shirt out. I had just bought recently, and wasn't ready to give up quite yet. I got several ideas from people, but the one that stood out was to use lemon essential oil. I love EOs so I was excited to try it. I was skeptical, as I always am. I dropped three drops of lemon EO on the area. I had pulled off the top of the sticker, and what was left was a thin paper lining covering the "glue." I left it on there for about 20 minutes or so as I went about my day. I then went back to it and peeled the paper part off. It was as simple as that. It came right off! Sticky stuff and all. All that remained was a couple of tiny areas around the outside of the circle which had a little sticky left on it. My daughter and I used our fingernails, and the sticky was gone in a minute. I threw the fleece back through the wash, and it is as good as new. Essential oils prove their worth to me again!
