    Post Will "Goo Gone" hurt my paint?

    I am getting ready to take some stickers off my Jeep and am wondering if "Goo Gone" will hurt the paint. If so what do you recommend to take the goobers off?

    Straight from googone.com

    Goo Gone is safe on your car exterior, using instructions for hard surfaces. It's safe on your upholstery and carpeting, using the instructions for carpeting. It's safe on the vinyl and glass, but may remove the tint from the tinted side of windows.

    just make sure you clean it off well when you are done, i'd wax the area as well.

    Cheers,

    Just a thought, but if you could use very hot water over the sticker to loosen the glue might come off without anything else. john

    try heat first. It could be as easy as using as a hair drier. If not your paint should hold up fine after goo gone, but waxing afterwards is a good idea.

    I removed 2 very large graphics off the side of my jeep. It's a real PITA. I used the hairdryer to get it off then used denatured alcohol to dissolve the goo. Let me tell you, that dissolved goo is nasty stuff. It's worse than any booger you've tried to get of your finger. Googone would probably work fine on something like a bumper sticker on the paint.

    Use a hairdryer and then some kind of paint cleaner/wax. It will come right off.

    Recently removed some stickers on jeep as well. Used a hair dryer to soften up the stickers & the adhesive backing. After a few seconds of the heat, the stickers come right off. Then i used some goo gone to remove the left over sticker residue. Didn't hurt the paint one bit.

    I used goo gone to get the stickers that the dealership stuck on my Jeep. They had been on there for 2.5 years and goo gone was the trick.

    My buddy also used it to take the dealer stickers off his Bike and that was on plastic and it worked just fine.
