A tough mess like sticker or label adhesive, gum, lipstick, or wax can be a challenge to remove. The cleaning product Goo Gone can be used on a variety of surfaces, like plastic, upholstery, tile, wood, carpet, and appliances to remove those stuck-on messes. You can use the oil-based Goo Gone or Goo Gone All-Purpose spray, depending on your problem.
Things You'll Need
- Goo Gone oil or spray
- Clean cloths
- Mild soap
Apply a few drops of Goo Gone to the hard surface you are trying to clean, or spray the all-purpose solution onto a clean cloth, and then press the cloth to the item. Allow the Goo Gone to rest on the area for two to three minutes.
Rub a clean cloth over the problem area to work in the Goo Gone and pull out the loosened debris. Add more Goo Gone as needed if the area appears dry.
Wipe the remaining solution from smooth surfaces or dab at any soft materials such as clothing with a new cloth. Inspect the area to see if the problem you needed to clear away has been removed.
Repeat cleaning the item, if needed, following Steps 1 to 3 until the material has been removed.
Wipe hard surfaces with a clean cloth to remove residue. To clear away the Goo Gone residue, wash any clothing or fabric items with detergent once the stuck-on object is removed.
