my biggest vietnam gripe

Sticky labels that are damn near impossible to remove from just about anything you buy! I know….petty. And not to say you don’t encounter this in other places, but it is ridiculous here. Last year while setting up my first Saigon household, I spent major portions of my day trying to remove them. I tried a variety of knives, cold water, hot water, oil, plain old elbow grease and my husband. Eventually, I gave up and just left the labels on. I developed a new awareness when making purchases. If it didn’t have labels on it, it had my name on it! Unable to find an adhesive remover (probably looking in all the wrong places), job one on my first trip back to states was to find something. Check out this video of my sticky trial and ultimate glory:

Thanks for letting me vent! Saigon LOVE to all, Lisa

    Nail Polish Remover – but beware of items that may fall victim to colour loss!
