When working with silk, leather, suede, rubber, imitation stainless steel, drywall, unpainted wood surfaces, or unsealed stone, exercise extreme caution. After the solvent has soaked in, use a putty knife or Goo Gone Sticker Lifter to remove particularly dried-on adhesive.
Goo Gone is best used as a last resort on hard to get off stains that other methods have failed to remove. Also avoid using on fabrics because it will likely dye them gray.
Here are some things that you should not use Goo Gone on:
Urine - The chemical composition of urine is very similar to blood. It contains urea, creatinine, and ammonia. All three are toxic if inhaled or ingested. Urine also contains malondialdehyde, which can cause serious breathing problems if it gets into your lungs. To remove urine stain from carpet, mix 1/4 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of vinegar and let it sit for about 30 minutes before cleaning with a vacuum cleaner. Use caution not to ingest any material that may be found in the treated area when performing this task.
Blood - Blood stains are some of the hardest to remove from most materials. They need to be cleaned quickly after the incident has occurred to preserve the evidence. Cleaning products containing enzymes may be able to be used instead.
Allow Goo Gone to handle your most difficult mess. 14 oz. Goo Gone Paint Clean-Up: Removes latex acrylic and enamel spills, splatters, and oversprays, whether wet and dry. It may be used on almost any surface, including most plastics. Just wash it down with water and scrub hard-to-get places with a brush or sponge.
Goo Gone Kitchen Degreaser's foaming formula clings to grease and quickly dissolves it. It is safe to use on most sealed stone (such as worktops), glass (such as cooktops), metals (such as stove tops), and ceramic surfaces in the kitchen (like dishware). It may also be used on pots, pans, and baking sheets. Goof Gone does not remove wax from tools such as brushes or paintbrushes.

Hog Butcher Hog fat is hard at room temperature and has a neutral flavor. It is used in cooking to add richness and color to foods, but it is also solid at body temperature so it won't melt in your mouth. Heartburn Heartburn heartburn pain occurs when acid from your stomach flows into your esophagus - the tube that leads from your throat to your stomach. The problem can be caused by acid reflux disease, obesity, alcohol consumption, smoking, pregnancy, and hiatal hernia. To reduce the risk of getting heartburn, try not to lie down for about an hour after eating a large meal, avoid eating within three hours before going to sleep, and don't smoke or drink alcohol excessively.
Lard Lard is pig fat that is harvested from the back of the pig and stored for use as a cooking oil or ingredient.
Vinegar. When it comes to removing adhesives from a surface, vinegar may be a great help in dissolving the bond and making the work easier. A typical formula for removing sticky glue includes warm water, liquid dish soap, and vinegar. Nonslip surfaces, such as bathtubs, are especially vulnerable to adhesive-induced mess. Before you start cleaning, make sure the room is not carpeted. Carpets tend to hide any adhesive that gets on them. Instead of using white vinegar, which can be harsh on some materials, use apple or white wine vinegars instead.
Soap and water will remove most stickies, but they don't get everything. If you need an all-purpose cleaner that can remove sticky fingerprints from windows and floors as well as oily stains from hands, try our homemade window cleaner. It's easy to make and effective, too!
For small jobs around the house, including cleaning furniture, drapes, and carpets, mix 1 part hot water with 2 parts white vinegar. Use a mild detergent instead of soap to avoid staining anything. For even more effective results, add a few drops of essential oil to the mixture before spraying onto fabrics.
