How to Remove Goo Gone


Goo Gone is a brand of degreaser that removes stains. It can be used to remove crayon, tar, gum, tape, stickers and grease stains. Once Goo Gone is applied to these stains, they slide off onto a cloth. The next step is figuring out how to remove Goo Gone from the surface. Each surface requires a special cleaning method, though the procedures are simple.

Things You'll Need

  • Cloth
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Water
  • Plastic spray bottle
  • Sponge
  • Paper towels

Hard Surfaces

  • Pour 1 tbsp. liquid dish soap into a plastic spray bottle.

  • Fill the rest of the spray bottle with warm water.

  • Spray down the Goo Gone-covered surface with the mixture.

  • Dampen a sponge with water and wipe up the Goo Gone.

Carpet and Upholstery


  • Place the clothing into a washing machine, if the care instructions on the clothing label permit.

  • Pour in an extra 1/2 capful of laundry detergent. For example, if you normally only use 1 capful of laundry detergent, put in 1 1/2 this time.
