Review of Goo Gone – Miracle Stain Remover in a Bottle

We all have little mishaps in life where we need the power of a good stain remover! Well, stains and residue have found their match with Goo Gone. For once, the bottle really does what it says it does. As stated on the company website, goo gone can remove chewing gum, grease, tar stickers, labels, tape residue, oil, blood, lipstick and mascara, shoe polish, crayon, bumper stickers. Works on carpets, upholstery, clothing, wood, and cement. I’ve tested this product on a variety of these materials and found it to be quite effective.

I originally bought Goo Gone for a more unusual application. I had books I was selling online. Unfortunately, the books had some rather tenacious stickers attached to them. When I tried removing the stickers, I was always left with an annoying, sticky residue. I tried using a variety of household products to remove the residue including vinegar, lemon juice, and rubbing alcohol without success. That darn residue was still there!

Fortunately, on a forum for booksellers, someone mentioned Goo Gone as an effective means of removing residual sticker residue. Well, I was out the door and off to my local drugstore to buy a bottle! Fortunately, my local drugstore was having a sale and I was able to get a bottle for only $3.99. Upon returning home, I opened the bottle and was immediately impressed by the refreshing citrus scent. But, would it remove the sticker residue? I squeezed a small amount of the citrusy smelling liquid onto a soft, damp cloth and lightly rubbed the sticker mark on one of my books. Success! The residual, gummy sticker material was removed in a flash. I was becoming a real fan of this product!

Over the next few days, I tried Goo Gone stain remover on a variety of household mishaps. We had some ugly, black scuff marks on our white bathroom floor which hadn’t responded to other common household products. A little gentle rubbing with Goo Gone and they were gone. Bubble gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe? I was able to quickly remove a stubborn piece of bubble gum on the bottom of my running shoe. We have white kitchen counters which are notorious for showing dirt and accumulating difficult to remove stains. Whenever I have a stubborn one that doesn’t respond to household cleaners, I use a bit of Goo Gone and watch it disappear.

I would advise using this product in a well ventilated area since it does contain petroleum distillates. I usually don’t like to purchase products with potentially harmful ingredients, but I bought this product with the intention of using it only on stains and residue that don’t respond to more healthy cleaning products. For this, it definitely serves its purpose.

I would recommend Goo Gone if you need a touch stain remover with the additional ability to remove sticky residue. It’s available at a reasonable price and has multiple cleaning capabilities. Always keep this product away from children and use it in a well ventilated area. Give it a try and see what household problems it can solve for you!
