You’re removing price tags the wrong way – the right way means no broken nails or sticky residue
WE HAVE all experienced the frustration of trying to remove a price tag and leaving pieces stuck to the item.
Sometimes we try so hard to remove every piece of paper that we end up ruining our fingernails too.
A woman named Sarah Lindner, who goes by @TheHouseOfSequins on TikTok, said it doesn’t take much effort to remove stubborn tags.
“Stop picking on it,” she said, while using the corner of her fingernail to try and pry a sticky label off of a frame.
“Before you struggle with a stubborn sticker on a new item and leave that sticky residue, get out a hair dryer.
“Apply heat for a few moments and the sticker comes off right away.”
In the comments, a few viewers shared their own tips for removing tags like this:
“You can also use a lighter,” one person said.
“And use rubbing alcohol after that if any residue sticks,” added a second.
When it comes to useful product hacks like this, TikTok is full of ideas.
Recently, a guy named @Cast_Iron_Chris revealed that most of us clean our cast iron skillets poorly.
The common belief is that you shouldn’t use soap on cast iron, only water.
If you used soap or scrubbed it, people said you had to re-season the pan with salt and oil.
But @Cast_Iron_Chris said otherwise.
“Soap is safe for your cast iron,” he claimed in a video.
“Handmade soaps used to have a lot of lye in them.
“Lye will strip your seasonings, but modern soaps don’t contain lye in the finished product.
“Cleaning your cast iron properly ensures that it will continue to look and cook fantastically.”
Following his advice, one woman added in the comments section, “Don’t put it in the dishwasher though…or leave it in the soapy sink.”
A second agreed with his advice and commented: “Plus the soap strip oils yes. But NO SEASONING because of the way it binds when heated. The soap is good to use, the people!”
