Mineral oil works for me for many types of goop - adhesive.


I like that idea, and will try it.
Especially since a bunch of you use an "oil" to coat the paper labels ahead
of time to "soak" through the paper.

I don't do that since I use water to soak paper labels off.
But the "oil", if it works, would be a great solution.

There really isn't anything that will "dilute" gasoline that is not
either at least as flammable or at least as dangerous as gasoline
itself - particularly not that will not also destroy it's solvency.


Model T Fords would run on moonshine added to leaded gas :-)

That's called "E85" now... and it is available in califakeia.

I've found, through decades of experience, that gasoline, which also fails
sometimes, works more often than any other household common chemical.


Lighter fluid, NAPHTHA!

Did you try peanut butter on the labels?


I use common cigarette lighter fluid available everywhere in the tobacco section.


Second that.
