Easily Clean Gooey Messes that Kids & Crafts Leave Behind

As a parent and a crafter my home is in constant jeopardy of being destroyed by all of the messes made on a daily basis.

I am always on the lookout for a product that will make my cleaning easier and prevent me from having to replace things that get destroyed in the process of creating messy projects.

The most recent casualty in my home is the door knob on my daughters bedroom door. She decided it would be cute to put a decorative duct tape pattern on it which made opening and closing it really hard.

So I removed it and wouldn’t you know all of the adhesive stuck to the knob and left a sticky mess that makes you not even want to touch the door knob.

Life’s messes sometimes show up in some hard to clean places. For any sticky, gooey mess on a vertical surface, Goo Gone Spray Gel is your anti-freakout formula.

I picked up the Goo Gone Spray Gel, 12 fl. oz. spray bottle and got to work on the gooey sticky mess the tape left behind.

Just spray the gel onto the surface, watch it cling to the mess, then wipe away your sticky problem with a clean cloth. Whatever mess you come across and wherever you find that mess it will be Good as Gone.

Do not use on silk, leather, suede, rubber, faux stainless steel, drywall, unfinished wood surfaces, and unsealed stone.

It worked perfectly on the door knob and now I am going to use it on all of the gooey sticky messes around my home. I am most excited to try Goo Gone on new products like dishes or water bottles to get the labels off easily. That is one of my biggest pet peeves!
