Favorite: Goo Gone


It's been a while since I've posted about a favorite. This time I've chosen Goo Gone. It's a product I've been using for many years and it works like a charm every time! Everyone knows that it removes sticky labels from items but it does a whole lot more.

Back when the kids were little my son lost his favorite coat on the little league field. It was a cute coat too. It was blue with red accents. We did find that coat a few weeks later back behind the fenced in field. Unfortunately someone had taken a gigantic wad of purple bubble gum and ground it into the coat. I don't know why I decided to try Goo Gone to remove it, but I did. After I chipped away the big sections, I poured some on the gum area and let it sit. I went back about an hour later and wiped. I repeated this process throughout an entire evening. By the time I was finished (several trips later) there was NO TRACE of the ground in bubble gum.

Last week, after trying everything I could think of to clean my oil bottle, I decided to get out my trusty Goo Gone. Why oh why didn't I do that to begin with? If anyone has ever tried to clean an oil bottle, you know what a job it is. I even googled it and found tons of things people tried, but nothing worked until I got out my Goo Gone. See how sparkly clean it is!

The stuff is cheap, and it doesn't hurt to have some on hand. So pick up a bottle!

  1. We keep a bottle in the "junk cupboard" and it comes in handy more often than one would think :)

  2. Wonder what the nearest equivalent to that miracle substance would be on this side of the Pond? Could always do with something like that!

  5. I have a bottle of Goo Gone! It is amazing stuff. I never thought to use it for gooey oil either, but I bet it would also work like charm to clean up oil splatters around the stove hood and fan. Thanks for the tip! I'll have to see what else this magical remover can do :)
