Goo Gone Passion Project

There are so many products on the market today that claim to do AMAZING things but most of the time I am left disappointed. I was recently contacted by the folks over at Goo Gone and they invited me to participate in their "Passion Project." They told me if I participated, they were going to send me something great but that it would be flawed and I would have to use Goo Gone to fix it. I thought long and hard about participating, a little fearful about not knowing exactly what was coming or how it was going to arrive but I thought, what the heck?! We will give it a shot! And boy am I glad we did!!!

We received a super fabulous playhouse from the awesome people over at Goo Gone. When it arrived, my 4 kiddos were super excited! My husband quickly got to work and within hours, it was ready to go!!

But you know, they did warn me it was going to come with some flaws on it and if you are a Mom, what you are about to see is probably something you have seen before! Crayons and Stickers! My kids favorite thing to destroy my stuff with! I cannot even tell you how many things my kids have destroyed with these types of products....probably enough that I could write a book except someone already beat me to it! You can see all of the LOVELY drawings and stickers on the playhouse below!

I wasn't really sure how the Goo Gone was going to work. After all, I have never found a product yet that completely takes crayon off of certain surfaces nor have I ever been able to get stickers off of anything without hours of soaking and scrubbing. So watch this video to see how the Goo Gone did. Do you think it passed the test?!?!?!

So since we cleaned up the Playhouse, I have went somewhat crazy around my house, gettin' my "Goo Gone On" and fixing anything and everything that needs it.  4 kids can do a lot of damage, ya know?!

My kids were just in a long season of soccer and being the good Mom that I am and all, I have been very diligent in making sure their uniforms get washed every night so wouldn't you know, in my hurry the other night, I washed and dried my 6 year old's jersey with a name tag on it! After several failed attempts to clean it, I suddenly remembered the Goo Gone and I could not believe how FAST it worked!

Here is the shirt when I took it out of the washing machine. BOO!

I was so amazed that I had to post my pictures on Facebook and show all of my friends and family. I know. Silly thing to get excited about but I paid a lot of money for this shirt and I cringed at the thought of having to throw it out over a silly sticker!

Now look!!!  It's as good as new!! WOOT WOOT!

I suggest  you go out and grab a bottle of Goo Gone STAT!  My kids have started calling me the "Crazy Goo Gone Lady" but it's all good. At least I am starting to restore some of my stuff that I thought was ruined!!! And while you are at it, be sure to go like the Goo Gone Facebook Page to keep up!


  1. That's amazing! I am going to get some to try on our toyroom! We have stickers everywhere!!

  2. Awesome play house! I am thrilled you had the chance to review the Goo Gone. After raising 4 kids and 6 grandkids living with us now, I have to say.. I have so many things that have been passed down, that I can clean up now!. We have lots of stickers on the rocking horse, toys, toy boxes.. Thank You for sharing.
