I recently obtained 4 wooden wine crates, each which had a big white label stuck to the end. I was able remove the label but it left sticky residue over the entire end of the box. Any suggestions on how to remove this? I want to stain the crate and put a stencil on the end but I can’t do anything until I get the sticky glue off the woDo.

    Goo Gone will take the sticky residue off.

    Smear some peanut butter on it. It won't hurt the wood. If you're going to stain after use a little diluted vinegar to help with the oil

    How about using a solvent such as lacquer thinner, no residue or Goop label remover. A heat gun and scraper might work as well, yet you will have to use a solvent to prep the surface so the wood accepts the stain.

    Hello! I just removed sticky residue from some new glassware I purchased. At first I tried Scrubbing it off with the rough side of a sponge after soaking the glasses in soapy water. No luck! Then I tried something I read about. I put a couple of drops of Dawn dish detergent directly on the affected area and then a couple of drops of white vinegar. I let that soak for just a few seconds and then rubbed the area with my finger and the sticky stuff immediately came off!

    Try a little bit of regular fingernail polish remover on a tiny corner of the sticky spot. I think this will remove the glue without leaving a spot of any kind like Goo Gone

    A little oil rubbed into the sticky area, .apply baking soda or cleanser, work it in and should scrub right off. Elmer's Glue makes a "sticky" remover that is excellent on residue and glue. It's with the glue in the craft section.
