Help! How can I get the glue off the bottom of some plastic cups, where the price tag was?

I've tried WD40, rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover w/acetone, lighter fluid, SOS pad, and Comet Cleanser.

Nine of them cleaned fine using the WD40 but the last three are putting up a fight.

Any help would be appreciated before I take them back the Macy's!

franksolich is somewhat of a snob about this.

Don't buy plastic eating-ware.

Buy only glass, china preferred.

2. Sometimes adhesives will freeze and let go.

3. I always get scotch tape and keep putting it on and pulling it off, taking a little of the glue at a time. It doesn't work on everything, but it usually does. When too much glue is on the tape, you just grab another piece and continue.

And from what I have heard (although I have not used it myself), WD-40 sometimes needs to be left on for a while to soak in and react with the glue.

The curmudgeonette primitive above is a pal of the big guy's.

One wonders if she knows where the big guy's hiding, and why he's hiding.

You gotta be kidding me.
They don't have clue as to how to remove adhesive that's still there?
I don't think the DUmmie did any of those things.
Any petro based product will get it off.
Stupid DUmpmonkeys.

Tervis plastic cups kick ass.  I like to drink a lot of water and iced tea, and they keep it cold for hours.

I would suggest the suich primitive fill the plastic cup with 1 part bleach and 1 part ammonia and wait patiently for the sticker to come off.

I've always noticed everybody in the DUmpster is more than happy to help the primitives with their household issues.  I wish I had started collecting all of our helpful hints when I first started noticing them, so we could have a Conservative Cave Household Hints e-book for the primitives to download.

The problems of the Primitives. Ah.

It would never occur to me to ask how to get price tag glue off an item. I would just try a variety of things and eventually it would come of. It always does.

Of course, years ago I asked how to cook brown rice in a microwave and someone told me to get a rice cooker. I resisted for a while, but that was the right answer.

Everyone has different levels of experience.

I would tell the primitive, "Elbow grease."

Of course, the primitive would equate that with "work" and reject it out of hand.

Maybe not.
