In a Pinch with Leechey Labels? - Use PAM

A new added product to my Interior Redesign/Home Staging "Bag 'o' Tricks" will include a can of PAM cooking spray.

With a little squirt, I got an end finally lifted up, and to my shock those puppies came right off. With a second squirt and some elbow grease, the layer of adhesive came off too.
