It is a combination of citrus power and scientific technology designed to eliminate the very toughest gooey, sticky, gummy and greasy problems (It is not petrol based like some other products which can often do more harm than good.

Why Not Take A Look At Some Of The Common Questions People Have and Then Consider For Yourself How You Would Use It? Can I use it to remove tar, stickers, grease off my car?
Goo Gone is safe on your car exterior, using instructions for hard surfaces. It's safe on your upholstery and carpeting, using the instructions for carpeting. It's safe on the vinyl and glass, but may remove the tint from the tinted side of windows. How can I remove lipstick, tar, grease from my carpet?
Yes, but use it properly. It is an adhesive remover and, if used improperly, it can remove the adhesive that affixes the carpet fibers to the backing. Therefore, don't pour it into the carpet. Put some on a clean, white rag and work the grease out, changing the rag surface periodically. When you're done, wash the carpet area with soap and water and rinse well with clean water. Chewing gum got all over my clothes in the dryer. Help!
You'll have to treat each gum area separately, and let it work for 20 to 30 minutes. Then wash no more than a few pieces of clothing at a time in the washing machine, thereby allowing the articles free movement. Check them before putting them back into the dryer. Use it on a rag to clean the dryer, drum, and rinse. Can I use it to remove melted candle wax from my fine furniture?
Absolutely. Just follow the instructions for hard surfaces. Then wipe it clean and top with your usual furniture polish. How safe is this product? It says "combustible."
Combustible means you'd actually have to heat it to a temperature of 133°F and use a match to ignite it. Flammable means it would burn if you put a match to it at room temperature, and Goo Gone is not flammable. It's safe to clean your dryer drum and your oven... just wash with soap and water when you're through. How safe is this product? Why don't you put a child-proof cap on it?
It has been proven safe, in that it is orally non-toxic and non-irritating to eyes and skin, according to The Federal Hazardous Substance Act. It contains no hazardous air pollutants or ozone depleters. However, it is a chemical and should be respected as one, and kept out of the reach of children. Older children can be supervised and taught to respect GooGone just as they would a fruit-scented bath soap or candle. Is it safe in my septic tank?
The small amounts of the product entering a septic tank will not alter or otherwise affect the natural biological activity of the system. Eventually the chemicals will biodegrade or evaporate. Can I use it to remove gum from my daughter's hair?
It is safe on hair, but we prefer that it not be in touch with her scalp. If you have to get close to the scalp, we recommend you use our GG Hand Soap, available in most national-chain hardware stores. Is it safe on skin?
Safe, but avoid open wounds and wash with soap and water afterwards. Avoid prolonged contact with fingertips and under fingernails. Wear rubber gloves when using it for long periods of time. On what may I not use GooGone?
Non-washable fabrics, such as silks and satins, and natural materials, such as leather, suede, and rubber. It's not for photos, as it could damage the emulsion on the paper and be absorbed by the paper, leaving a yellow tint. I used it on my windows and now it's all smeary looking.
You're not finished with the job. It dissolved the adhesive, and you smeared it around on your window. Now take another clean, dry cloth with more Goo Gone and remove what's there. Can I use it to remove the safety treads from my bathtub?
Yes, but realise the treads are plastic, and the liquid has to touch the adhesive underneath. It would be best to pull off what you can, and apply it directly to the remaining adhesive. Let it sit for a while, and go back every now and then to see what's been loosened. Don't allow it to dry or evaporate; keep putting it on the adhesive and be patient. Wear rubber gloves to protect your fingertips. Will it remove paint?
It will remove those accidental paint messes if you get them before they're thoroughly dried - so that's good. However, if your budding artist drew on the walls with crayon, the product will remove the crayon without ruining your paint - so that's good. Can I dilute it to make it go further?
It is an oil-based product, used to dissolve icky, sticky, gummy, gooey messes, and can't be mixed with water. If you need an all-purpose type of cleaner, we recommend our water-based GG All-Purpose Cleaner, which can be used full-strength on many cleaning projects and diluted to wash large surfaces. However, the two products are not interchangeable. My dog got into some tar. Can I use it on his fur?
While we do not officially recommend it, we are aware of its use to remove ink and tar from pets and by veterinarians to de-oil birds. Be careful with the animal's eyes, and wash it off thoroughly afterwards. And remember, GG Hand Soap is perfect for our furry friends. Is it okay to use it on scuff marks on my wooden floors? On vinyl floors?
Yes for any floor, but it leaves a slippery surface, so wash with soap and water afterwards.
