I had put some what I thought were completely removable stickers on my machine. Well I decided I didn't want them and although the stickers came off ok some of them left behind a sticky residue. And then I made the mistake of trying to get it off with a conventional cleaner and used a blue piece of terry cloth I had in my sewing room and on two areas now I have blue covered sticky patches from the lint. The cleaner didn't remove it at all. Any clue to what I can get to take this off. Janomey is not happy about this. I guess I just shouldn't have tried to decorate him.

Goo Be Gone will quickly and safely remove all the residue.

Eucalyptus oil usually works and won't damage finishes at all.

I know this might sound crazy, but I take scotch tape and keep pressing it down over the spot and pulling it up. It's slow, but it has always worked for me. Clear packing tape works even faster if you have any. HTH

WD40 will take the residue off. Use a green scrubby pad after applying WD40 and letting sit a while. It should totally come off.

Rubbing alcohol or lemon oil also work too. I have goo gone too and will agree that it works but rubbing alcohol is a common household item.

I use tape/shipping tape to get off other sticky residue that's left behind and it works---but if the sticky residue is now covered in blue lint, the tape trick might not work as well....

I've also used baking soda made into a paste with water to get sticky residue off and isn't suppose to scratch I don't think.

HTH!

Thanks guys I knew you all would have an answer. I will try the tape and alcohol first as I have those two things already.

WD 40 is overkill for almost anything - it reeks of volatile fumes and I don't think I would ever get it anywhere near my sewing room. Goo Gone - absolutely Goo Gone - it's citrus oil, and may stain fabric - as in fabric book covers, but for anything else, we even use it here in the library to remove sticky residue on paperbacks with shiny covers, and I use it at home all the time for anything sticky. Well worth having int he home chemical repository.
