Lighter Fluid: The Best Label and Scuff Mark Remover
Article by: Rachel Paxton
The first time my husband saw me scrubbing the black heel marks
off of our kitchen floor , External vs. Submersible Pumps. Which one should you Use? with a toothbrush, he said, "You know
lighter fluid will take those marks right off." And it did! No
scrubbing at all, just a little lighter fluid poured on a paper
towel, and the marks wiped right off.
So what kind of lighter fluid? I purchased mine at the grocery
store in the aisle where the picnic and barbecue items are
located, right next to the lighter fluid you buy for your
barbecue briquets. It came in a small plastic , Pool Table Lights Guide: How To Light Up Your Game squeeze bottle that
cost less than $2.
You can use lighter fluid on a variety of surfaces, first testing
a less noticeable spot to make sure it won't do any damage. It's
great on most floors, , Trees in the Home Landscape plastic, , October in the Flower Garden – Preparing for Winter vinyl, some wood , External vs. Submersible Pumps. Which one should you Use? surfaces,
basically anything you can dab it on and wipe off again.
Lighter fluid will remove labels and adhesive from almost any
surface. When we got our new refrigerator it had strapping tape
stuck all over it. The lighter fluid took it right off. I've also
used it to take stickers off of book covers. It removes crayon
marks from most surfaces and also removes grease and oil stains.
I haven't tried this myself, but someone told me they poured a
little lighter fluid on an area of clothing that had been stained
by cooking oil, and the stain came right out in the wash. Try
this at your own risk, but she swears it works. You can also use
it to remove the black scuff marks on the rubber soles of your
shoes, and to remove gum from most surfaces.
Don't forget that lighter fluid is highly flammable and should be
used with care. It is also inexpensive, easy to find, and you'll
find so many uses for it you won't be able to live without it.
