    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

    Next time use shrink wrap. You can buy it at Walmart in the same section where they sell shipping supplies. I use it to "tape" all the drawers in every thing shut. One roll will last for ages.

    I have used a product called DK5 with great results. It removes the extra spray from a spray adhesive called 505 for spray basting quilts. It does not harm wood or fabric or any other surface that I have used it on. It looks oily when you first wipe it around but when it dries, all residue is gone.
