How to remove labels from glass jars easily

Recycling cans or some bottles, either to reuse them with our own recipes, or to perform different DIY jobs is very common. Let's see how easy it is to eliminate the labels of these containers with one of our simple DIY tricks.

Every time we are more those that we put ourselves to realize our own preserves and of course, they will need a container. The best option, and of course the most economical one, is to reuse all the containers of the products that we consume in our day to day.

For this DIY trick, we need bottles or glass bottles that we want to reuse and that, as is normal, will have their label very well attached.

To eliminate these labels without any effort or damaging the container, we will only need steam, as simple as that.

We place a pot (large enough so that the label receives the steam completely) with water to the fire and we take it until the boiling point.

When the water is boiling, we take the container, with the help of a rag or mitten, so that the steam does not burn us, and we make the steam come into direct contact with the label.

About two minutes, we can gradually remove the label seeing how there are no remains of the adhesive in the container.

If we want to take advantage and save even more, if possible, this trick of DIY, we can take advantage of the water vapor generated in any cooking we do, as the package will not come into contact with food, there is no risk of spoiling it.
