Rubbermaid History

Rubbermaid was founded as Wooster Rubber by 9 businessmen in 1920 in Wooster, Ohio.  The company originally produced toy balloons.

In 1933, James Caldwell received a patent on his red rubber dustpan design.  This was the first product in the Rubbermaid line.

In 1934, Rubbermaid and Wooster Rubber merged and took the Rubbermaid name.

During World War II, the company ceased making household items and helped with the war efforts.

In 1947, the company introduces a line of automotive products.

In 1955, the company goes public.

In 1999, Rubbermaid and Newell merged to form Newell Rubbermaid.

In 2003, the company headquarters was moved from Wooster, Ohio to Atlanta, Georgia.  Over 1200 jobs were lost at the Ohio plant.

Today, the Newell Rubbermaid umbrella includes a diverse array of companies including Sharpie, Graco and Calphalon.

I bought a medical kitchen garbage can and I love it. However when I tried to remove the label it left the glue it was stuck on with. I have tried soapy water but didn’t want to use anything else. Could you please tell me how to get this off. I spent $39.00 for a can that I don’t to use. I need help. I have never in many years had any trouble with the many many things I have bought from Rubbermaid.
Please help me.
