Harsh Odor

Goo Gone is not made with any industrial solvents and does not have a harsh odor. It actually has a fruity citrus smell. It doesn’t have the strong aroma presence of most cleaning items.

Be sure to poke a small hole in the top of the Goo Gone top. Where the paper is covering the lid. Do not remove that. Since you don’t use a lot of this at one time. You want it to come out a moderate as possible. Poking a small hole in the top will help with this.

Once you place Goo Gone on an area you want to clean. Remember to get the best results you will want to let the oil sit for a few minutes 2-3 at least.

Never use the oil directly on clothing while you are wearing them. If you have a stain on a clothing item. Simply apply a small amount of the oil to cover the stain entirely.

Let it sit for a while to break the stain. Once you’ve let it sit long enough you will then want to blot the stained area clean with a white cloth.

Once you’ve done this it is important that you launder oil treated clothing items separately and when you do wash them be sure to use extra detergent.

Do not use around heat, sparks or flames and keep stored in a place safely out the reach of children.
