Goo Gone - My package came!

Reader Friends, I know I have talked to you about Goo Gone before, but I think I have neglected to mention the fact that they recognized my devotion to the product by asking me to be a Goo Gone GooRu.  No, this does not mean I will be pasting Goo Gone ads all over my blog and spamming you.  It DOES mean that they saw my fanatic product devotion and sent me a package of goodies! 

If you haven't heard me say it yet, Reader Friends, Goo Gone is something I think every book owner ought to have.  It's my secret weapon for removing even the stickiest of stickers from book covers.  You know how when you buy a book from the university book store or from a used book store and it has that obnoxious yellow USED tag on the spine?  I know you guys know what I'm talking about because I see them all over.  OR the really awful humongous used book stickers that cover like half of the back of a book.  And you think it'll take napalm or something to remove them?  Put the Goo Gone on, leave it for 5 minutes and come back - the stickers peel right off.  I kid you not. 

I first got the recommendation from a Nestie about three years ago and I've kept a constant supply of it in my home and at my school library since then.  There are a million other uses too, but I'll limit myself to the book related ones here.  Oh and it's safe for paperbacks and hardbacks and is also great for removing ink smears, sticky substances and general grunge from books (I clean all my used books with Goo Gone and rubbing alcohol as soon as I bring them home).

Ok so on to the goodies.  Here's what the wonderful Mary Jo at Goo Gone sent me:

Several bottles of Goo Gone in different strengths and formulas (the jackpot!)

T-shirt, tote bag, cute little hand towels, a Goo Gone bumper sticker, and a folding file thing to hold all of my crafting ideas (super cute fuzz ball in the right hand corner was not included).

Even Sly loves Goo Gone, Reader Friends.  He snuggled right up to all my awesome swag.


  1. That is awesome! I must agree, Goo Gone is a great product!

  2. I wish Goo Gone would send ME a goody package!

    I LOVE this stuff and have been using it for years. When the used bookstore opened up here recently they had those stickers on them that wouldn't just peel off and left white and sticky all over the books (it was so bad it even ripped one of the covers!) but trusty Goo Gone saved me the headache of books sticking to other books once on my shelf.

    I'm glad I'm not the only person that loves this stuff.

  3. Hahaha, free stuff is always fun! Now please, go put that awesome bumper sticker on your car, STAT!
