There are lots of great containers that you can use to store beads in. Tic Tac boxes, empty pill bottles, and plastic jars of all shapes and sizes can double as the perfect bead storage container. However, taking the labels off of these jars may not be as simple as it sounds. Usually, the glue that holds the label in place is water soluble, but if you've tried hot water and still have a sticky residue on your bead storage box, then try one of these remedies.
· Rubbing Alcohol
· Baby Oil
· Mineral Oil
· Goo Gone
Simply apply any of the above substances and rub on the glue until it dissolves. Remember to wash the jar thoroughly after removing the glue before storing your beads.
