Someone put stickers on our whiteboard. Three weeks ago. So guess what happened when we tried to take them off. Go ‘head. Guess.

Yep.  The world asploded.

No.  Just kidding.  That was a horrible guess.

There was icky-sticky residue!  Only the top half of the sticker came off.  You know how it goes.

But that doesn’t work well on a white board, where you want a smooth, wipe-able surface.  Not at all.

Once upon a time, we would have reached for the Goo Gone – have you ever heard of that stuff?  Smells like oranges on steroids.  Dipped in acid.

But we have long since run out of that glorious solution.  And I’m all No More Chemicals Under My Sink these days, so we didn’t replenish the supply.  But one quick Google search later, my worries were over.


Natural Goo-Be-Gone

  • Vinegar
  • Cotton Ball
  • Wash Cloth
  1. Generously moisten a cotton ball with vinegar.  I used white because it’s what I have in largest quantities. (Go, Costco!)
  2. Soak the offending residue with the cotton ball.
  3. Let it sit 15 minutes.  Or as long as it takes to complete the next step.
  4. Dampen a washcloth with hot water and hold on top of the sticky residue. The steam will finish what the vinegar started.
  5. When you get bored, rub. It’ll come right off!

Less than five minutes.  Because I cheated on step 3.  Hope it works as well for you as it did for me!
