I’m unreasonably excited about this simple recipe for Homemade Goo Gone. Earlier this week, I was working on a craft project and found myself in desperate need of goo gone. I could not find the bottle I thought we had. Since it was nap time, and I did not want to put my project on hold, I started brainstorming.
I tried vegetable oil, and that was softening the leftover label, but I needed something abrasive. So, I grabbed the baking soda and made a thick paste with the vegetable oil. It worked perfectly.
Homemade Goo Gone
1 part vegetable oil
2 parts baking soda
Stir together until paste is formed. Then, use a paper towel or your fingers to apply. Work the mixture into the residue until it releases from the surface.Wash off with soap and warm water.
I was prepping my surface for paint, so I used rubbing alcohol to clean any oil residue left behind.
That’s it, just wanted to pop in and share this quick idea. We may in fact have goo remover in the house, but I can never find it when I need it. I love the homemade version because I always know where those ingredients are!
