How to Remove Sticker Residue From Clothes

So I washed B’s soccer shirt with his name tag still on it.  When it came out of the dryer the sticker was gone and I was left with a big rectangle of sticker residue.  That stuff did not want to come off!  After a second washing it then had sand and lint stuck on it too.

Well tonight is soccer photo night, and I couldn’t have B looking goofy, so I tried something that actually worked to take it off easily, rubbing alcohol!

That’s right, rubbing alcohol.  I poured some on the area, let it soak in for a few minutes and used an old toothbrush to rub it.  The stuff came right off and it looks as good as new!  You will need to launder the clothes after as well, but he is ready for pictures now.

*Disclaimer* I have used rubbing alcohol to clean things before (see my cleaning microfibre couch post) and have never had an issue with staining or colour removal.  However, if you are worried about it, test in an inconspicuous area of the garment first.

Also, you may need to repeat this process a couple of times to get all of the residue off.

Mini Tortilla Pizzas

I am always on a mission to find good new lunch box items.  I am also always on a mission to use up leftovers.  So with this recipe I double scored!  I had leftover tortillas after making chicken caesar wraps for dinner and needed something to do with them.  I stumbled across this recipe and thought I would give it a try.

Well, they were a huge success, in fact I had to make more than I originally planned because they kept getting eaten right off the plate as fast as I could take them out of the oven.  They are perfect as appetizers, for a pot luck, and in lunch boxes.  You can use whatever toppings you want to, I made some pepperoni and cheese, and some just cheese for my little picky pants.

Ingredients

tortillas

pizza sauce

grated cheese

pepperoni (I chopped mine up instead of slices)

other optional toppings.

 

You want to start by preheating your oven to 450*

While the oven is preheating dump your sauce in to another container and wash and dry your can.  You are going to use the top of it to cut your tortillas in to circles.  You will end up with this (and a little bit of waste which you can bake and dip in hummus).

Press your tortilla rounds in to a muffin tin and bake for 4 minutes, or until slightly browned.  This will give them a nice little bit of crunch.

Once they come out of the oven, add your sauce, toppings and cheese.  Return to the oven and bake for another 4 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve and enjoy!
