We’ve all been there: you try to remove a sticker from something and end up with a gluey mess even more annoying than the sticker itself. Luckily, you can wash that residue off with just a bit of vodka.

Whether it’s from a bumper sticker, product label or price tag, you can get rid of the leftover glue on a surface by rubbing it with a vodka-soaked cloth. It takes a bit more elbow grease than our favourite glue-removing product Goo Gone, but is well worth the work. While Goo Gone can take down any residue with a few strokes, I’ve found that it leaves its own oily residue behind that’s just as hard to remove as the original glue (and forget about washing it off your fingers). If you’re willing to take an extra 60 seconds or so, vodka will save you the hassle and leave you with a clean, shiny finish when you’re done.
