    I was moving and I taped my drawers on my sewing maching cabinet shut. Well after the move i removed the tape and now i have a sticky gooey gunk on cabinet. How do I get it off with out hurting the wood?

    Goo gone is great! Peanut butter might work too.

    If those don't work, try calling a furniture restorer in your area for advice; bound too be one in Denver!

    Be careful with goo gone... it might remove the finish. Just a thought.

    I would try the peanut butter. If you use goo gone try it in an inconspicuous area first. I agree, it may mar the finish.

    I hope one of these suggestions were successful. Please let us know what worked. It may save someone else. Like me....I am always taping things. LOL
