Raise your hand if you've ever felt personally victimized by a sticker that just would not come off. The worst is when it won't come off, and you're on a schedule. Like, you just bought new dishes from the dollar store for a party, go to wash them, and the sticker just WON'T COME OFF.

The worst, right?! We've all been through it, we all know the pain it causes. Luckily, there are actually A LOT of super easy ways to remove stickers and their gross residue with items you likely already have in your home.
