Have you ever bought a pair of shoes, removed the price tag but ended up with all kinds of hair, garbage and gunk stuck to where the price-tag was the first time you wore them? You are not alone! In this post, I am going to give you an easy-peasy way to remove that pesky price-tag residue and avoid “goo shoe”.

How to Remove Price-tag Residue

Maybe you have never had this problem before but I have on more than one occasion. Fortunately, there is a quick and easy solution to this problem. Just put a few drops of Essential Oil (any kind of EO will work) on the place where the price-tag was and rub it in. The EO will loosen the left-over adhesive and you can simply wipe it away with a paper-towel. Voila! You now have a clean shoe sole without that annoying sticky residue! For purposes of demonstration I made sure to add some hair and dirt to the bottom of the shoe so that you could see that it really does take everything off.
