Here's What You Can Substitute For Goo Gone
If you want to make a Goo Gone substitute at home, mix 1/4 cup baking soda, 1/8 cup vegetable oil, and 3 drops of citrus essential oils of your choice. The abrasive nature of the powdered particles gives you scrubbing power, and the vegetable oil helps to dilute the oil-based adhesive.
For best results, add this liquid adhesive remover to the surface area and let it sit for five to ten minutes, which will help the formula to start breaking down the glue and will involve less elbow grease from you in the long run. Then, using either a warm wet rag or label remover, gently work the adhesive off.
Another alternative to Goo Gone is Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, which is used for freshening backsplashes and removing adhesive. The Magic Eraser uses a combination of melamine and formaldehyde to create the signature sponge foam, which works to neutralize any toxic traits in formaldehyde.
