Commercially known as “Goo Gone™,” this similar homemade formula will clean up any sticky messes or remove an adhesive, stickers, or anything else sticky and gooey. Need to remove a sticker from a product but it has torn and won’t come off? Maybe you need to remove the price sticker from a gift to conceal how much or how little you paid for it. Use the following essential oil mix to unstick that pesky adherent:
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp baking soda
- 5 drops of lemon, orange, grapefruit or lime oil (any citrus-based oil)
Mix the ingredients well and let sit for at least 10 minutes. The product will be very oily and greasy, in order to deactivate the adhesive qualities of the item being cleaned.
