Discovering something new

I've been meaning to post about this for some time. On Mother's Day 2010 SARAH the youngest

made this hand scrub for me. It contained lemon and olive oil and was suppose to keep hands that are constantly in water smooth as silk. With all the cooking that I do, and still doing dishes by hand,it is sometimes difficult to keep my favorite tools (my hands) comfortable and moist.One day after finishing the dishes and creaming my hands I realized I had forgotten to soak a few items that had those nasty labels stuck to them. Well my hands had that cream all over them and I rubbed the price labels with my finger tip.

A perfectly useful scoop was sitting on my counter because I couldn't take the glue off.
Just a little of this magic rub and look what happened !!! Must have been a fluke right? So I dug out a plastic tcontainer top that was impossible to scrape the label from. Pretty nasty......... right? Believe me I tried everything .

A dollop of scrub on the tip of my finger and a gentle circular motion on the label and look how it turned out.

It looks like it was never used..............I repeated this process on so many labels that I had to become a believer. The gift was about 6 months old when I discovered its' secret talents. I don't know if aging had anything to do with it. If you'd like such a scrub I found the recipe HERE If you try this let me know how it works for you. I'd be interested to know if anyone else has such marvelous results..............said the hobbit

This has two wonderful ingredients to break down gooey stuff - the oil and the lemon zest. It really should work well. I have copied the recipe.

I'll be interested to hear if you get similar results.
