I've never tried those - my focus has been on glass. You'll need to handle it one way or another to get the label off. Try taking off the label by hand after you've put on gloves. You could also try acetone; HDPE jugs should be fine with that.
The Carrot Recorder
Yes, of course! The water is important too.
They use compressed air - there is no chemical propellant.
How does the launching mechanism actually work? I couldn't find a close-up video of it in operation, and Amazon and the other retailers featuring it didn't give any details or sufficiently helpful pictures.
What was that high-pitched whirr in the video?
Wow, I'm surprised it didn't crack during that time - thank you for letting me know!
Nice! I've been thinking of making an end table with a wood disc like this. I'll be interested to hear how it holds up - do you expect that the sealant will hold in moisture well enough to keep it from splitting?
That's correct - mixing vinegar and baking soda alone is harmless. The dangerous reaction that produces chlorine gas is when vinegar and certain industrial cleaners are mixed.
Vinegar and baking soda are a good altenative to industrial drain openers. However, they should never be mixed because the reaction between an acid and a hypochlorite (common in drain cleaners and bleach) produced chlorine gas, which is deadly and odorless.In general, cleaning products should never be mixed because we generally don't know their contents (as it's proprietary information) and most of us don't know how the chemical components of different cleaners may react.Would you mind adding a warning to step 5 for the safety of readers who don't know this?
Thank you! WD-40 is an interesting solution. Its formula is a trade secret, but it's akin to oils in that it's nonpolar and immiscible with water - as I've heard, the WD actually stands for "water dispersant". Now I'm honestly wondering if anyone's done quantum chemistry calculations to see how nonpolar molecules might interfere with adhesives.
You're welcome! It's great because it's so cheap and convenient!
The Complete Guide to Label RemovalView Instructable »
These are awesome! I was just looking into the same problem! They sound great and I'm looking forward to trying this. Your Instructable is well-written and has nice photos - it's all-around very well done.I do have a few questions before I get started, though. First, what type of silicone did you use? The 100% silicone I usually use always seems to end up feeling a little sticky when done, and I couldn't tell what sort you used. Second, did you experiment with different types of fabrics or sealants? I also have acrylic latex, and I'm on the lookout for natural latex. I have a fair assortment of different fabrics; I had been thinking of using canvas.
