What it takes to remove sticky bumpers from cabinet doors
First, remove the excess residues with a scraper (Yuck, just looking at this picture, I can’t stand it!!! Can I be cured? Haha)
Spray my magic trick: “Goo Gone” and let act a few minutes (take that time to scrape the rest of the cabinet doors!)
Finally, simply scrub with a paper towel. You can also apply the product to the paper towel.
There you go:
Oufff, I feel waaaay better !!! 😉
In any case, it works much better than anything else I tried (including peanut butter!)
Make sure to clean with soap or other product to remove oil residue before gluing new bumpers.
How about you, is there anything that disgusts you as this goo does to me? Leave me a comment, maybe we can start a therapy together! haha
