There are few things we love more than discovering a good thrift store or vintage find. The only thing is, many times these older pieces have gooey price tags stuck on them. Then, once you go to take off the label, you're left with this unpleasant residue. Luckily, Reader's Digest found an convenient way to remove sticky price tags.

First, try rubbing the substance off with soap and water. If that doesn't work, simply take a pencil eraser and use that to buff it away.

We've heard of removing adhesive with peanut butter, but this way makes so much more sense -- plus it's a lot cleaner. Click through our slideshow for more cleaning tips, and be sure to head over to Reader's Digest for more information.
