We’ve all experienced frustration when trying to lower the price and leaving leftover pieces stuck to the item.
Sometimes, we try so hard to peel off each piece of paper that we end up ruining our nails.
A woman named Sarah Lindner, who follows @TheHouseOfSequins on TikTok, said it doesn’t take much effort to remove stubborn cards.
“Stop picking,” she said, using the corner of her fingernail to try and lift a sticky card from the frame.
“Before you struggle with a stubborn sticker on a new item and leave that sticky residue, pull out a blow dryer.
“Apply heat for a moment and the sticker will peel off.”
In the comments, some viewers shared their own tips for removing tags like these:
“You can also use a lighter,” said one.
“And then use rubbing alcohol if there is any residue left,” adds a second.
When it comes to useful product hacks like this, TikTok is full of ideas.
Recently, a man using @Cast_Iron_Chris revealed that most of us clean our cast iron pan wrong.
The general myth is that you shouldn’t use any soap on cast iron — just water.
If you use soap or scrub it, people assume you’ll have to season the pan with salt and oil again.
But @Cast_Iron_Chris says otherwise.
“Soap is safe for your cast iron,” he claims in a video.
“In the past, handmade soaps contained a lot of lye.
“Lye will remove your seasoning, but modern soaps don’t contain any lye in the finished product.
“Cleaning your cast iron properly ensures it will continue to look good and cook great.”
Following his advice, one woman added in the comments: “However, don’t put it in the dishwasher… or let it sit in the soapy sink.”
A second person agreed with his advice and commented: “Add oil-cleaning soap, yes. But NO OOD because of the way it binds after it’s heated. Soaps are usable, people.” !”
