The wonders of Peanut Butter

If you're anything like me, you probably wonder why in the world stores like Target put sticky price tags on the actual item (like on sunglasses). Obviously I don't mind if I have a sticky price tag on an item that has a plastic or cardboard cover over it, but why are they putting the really sticky tags on the glasses of the sunglasses? Haven't they ever heard of those non-sticky window-type decals?? They work just as well and save the customer frustration!

So if you find yourself in this predicament, I have a solution that works well, in my opinion. All you need is the item, some peanut butter, and some oil-cutting soap. Apply peanut butter to sticky area and rub, gently also with your fingernails to make sure the peanut butter is getting all of the stickiness out (HINT: do NOT use crunchy peanut butter, or at least take out the actual chunks first, as this will scratch the item and leave you possibly worse off than before.) Then wash with oil-cutting soap, rinse, and voila!

So, if you're tired of sticky price tags and tired of sitting and scratching off stickiness just to have it spread around and get even worse, here is your solution. Hope it helps!

What a great tip! And I love the disclaimer about the crunchy peanutbutter! =)
