I can’t remember when I first encountered Goo Gone, but ever since our first meeting, I’ve had a bottle of the citrus solvent on hand. Why? This handy substance removes sticky residue from just about any surface. I find myself using it most often to excise pesky price tags, stickers and labels. There are probably a myriad of other substances that work to remove stickers and the like (white vinegar, olive oil, baby oil? I don’t know), but Goo Gone works every time and has a pleasant lemon-y aroma. You can buy it at any hardware store or online here.
