I looked for the discussion on scratchy labels but couldn't find it. I had two things delivered today, one had 4 things attached to the label, the other had 5. As well as a label, a washing advice label and a long ribbon or tape which was serving no useful purpose at all, there was a cardboard tag which advised me that if the garment was creased, pressing it would improve the appearance. At least it's not as bad as shirts with pins everywhere.
Sticky stuff remover from lakeland, removes label gum from any fabric or surface. When my GD was at nursery they told her mother that she had failed to recognise an everyday object in a test, turned out she didn't know what an iron was
Well remember the time in Germany when gin was in the cleaning cupboard for just this eventuality; it does the job of removing sticky labels perfectly ..................and also used to stop your windscreen wiper fluid freezing. That's OK until you drive back for hours to the Channel, go on the ferrry, are waiting hours the other side to disembark and idly wash your windscreen....................AAHHH Customs men come down heavy with their "anything to declare?" smell the gin and take your vehicle apart. We were usually moving from Germany to England with overfull car..................as I said "AAAHHHHH!"
