Can anyone make any other suggestions to get this off of the jars?

thanks

I've had success with WD-40, and also with soaking overnight in dish detergent (Dawn) and then rubbing with SOS pad.

Good luck.

Also, some folks said try Pledge furniture polish, white vinegar, and vegetable oil. (Not all together, separately, lol.) I haven't tried these.
