Re: Removing Can Labels for roaches or bugs?

A good soaking in warm water ought to do the trick and get the labels off most cans. Pay particular attention to the ones with labels depicting actual food, like Chef-Boy-R-Dee stuff. The labels look good enough to eat if you are hungry enough.
Make sure that when you label stuff with your sharpie that it is nearly illegible because the critters (rats, mice, roaches) can read!
