How to Make Your Own Goo Gone
I love Eco cleaning ideas (as you must know at this point!), so you can imagine how happy I was to find this recipe for an eco-friendly, DIY Goo Gone. And I was even happier when it worked so well!
Step 1: Gather your materials
I used a glass jar, baking soda and sunflower oil. You can use any vegetable oil, but this is what I had on hand.
Step 2: Pour the oil into the jar
First, I poured ¼ cup vegetable oil into my jar.
Step 3: Add baking soda
Then, I added ⅓ cup baking soda. Be careful not to spill -- baking soda can be kind of messy to clean up.
Step 4: Shake it up
I closed my jar and gave it a good shake and then it was ready to use! All I had to do was dip a rag in and get to scrubbing. Price tags stuck on china?
Want to reuse a bottle?
Barcode sticker residue?
Gone in a flash!

Made this--works perfectly !! I used it for removing the left over sticky after you have purchased a book and they have those stickers on them.
I am very allergic to the brand 'Goo-Gone' so I truly appreciate this recipe. Thanks.

I have some tarry marks on the inside of my door and am going to try this in small space first. Will be back with the results.
