Life comes with a lot of mysteries. Why do mattresses have tags? That’s one that keeps us up at night. That’s not the only one we find ourselves noodling over a fair amount. Why isn’t a toothbrush called a “teeth brush”? Wouldn’t the latter make more sense? If you come up with an answer to either of those questions, feel free to let us know more about it!

In the meantime, we are here to help you solve another one of life’s mysteries. We have always been bothered by the price tags that come on dishes. It’s like they are genetically engineered to be as difficult to remove as possible. Try as we might, we can never seem to get all of the residue off the dish.

Now, you don’t even have to worry about the careful removal aspect of things. You won’t have to stress yourself out over the remnants that you just can’t seem to get rid of. The solution that we are about to pass along to you (by way of our good friends at OWN) is an awesome one. We honestly can’t believe that we never came across this before.

All you need to get rid of these pesky tags is your handy dandy blow dryer. Grab that bad boy and apply some light heat to the problematic areas. You’ll only want to do it for about 5 to 10 seconds, though. After you’ve let that small amount of time elapse, it’s time to start peeling the label away. If the removal process is not clean the first time around, you may need to add more heat to the area.

If the label is coming off without a problem, pull it gently until removal is complete. We promise you, it is seriously that easy. This might legitimately be our favorite hack of the month. We only wish that we could have back all of the time that we spent scraping tags off before. This would have saved us a great deal of stress had we known earlier.
