When I run out of this batch, I'll have to give the new gel spray a try.

Two more tips using GG: I poured the remainder of my quart bottle into a wide-mouth glass jar filled with floral marbles. When my scissors get gunked up, I just stick them into the marbles and let them soak in the jar. After a while, I just take 'em out and wipe them clean with a paper towel.

The other thing is that the foam paint brush with a drop of GG on it can be wiped up and down both sides of your scissors while cutting out foam cushion, and the foam-cushion of the paint brush serves as an abrasive, which helps get the gunk off better.

I used to wipe the GooGone off my scissors with a kleenex to get the adhesive off... now I just squirt a small bit of gel and leave it right on the scissors... no rubbing to get off the adhesive. I had some of that double sided foam tape in a drawer holding a cutlery tray in and couldn't get it up so just squirted on GooGone and let it sit for a few hours and it lifted right up... I love the stuff (I know, I know... then why don't I marry it?)

I dunno, Stampo, you're gonna have to fight me for that honor..... love the stuff, too!! Recommend it every chance I get - now, if only I were a stockholder in the company, eh?? (I'm part Canadian, so I can say that, eh?).

I dunno... I've had to really practice to stop saying "eh" and never have learned how to say "out" the American way. LOL

I have a bottle of the original with the sprayer and have wondered what the "big deal" was, I wasn't that impressed with it. Now I know I have the wrong kind.

Cheryl, I like your idea of putting it in a jar and then weighting it down with glass marbles. I love all the things you learn and the tips that are shared here, RSC rocks!!

Don't cry Ms. Mouse! Notice that the case is all locked up tight to keep hungry kitties OUT. Sealed containers of small critters fall under the catagory of 'cat tv' not cat snacks.

I don't even bother with the hot water! While I usually use my thumbs & rub away while watching TV, I have used a Pampered Chef teflon pot scrubber (they're, square & brown with some of the corners rounded) when my thumb need a break. I did use UnDu when I was unmounting a gazillion stamps & the adhesive on a few didn't want to let go, but the majority of the stamps just peeled off with a little picking around the edges until I found the 'loose' spot.

I do leave anything mounted with the red foam on wood alone. The adhesive used with that foam (rubber cement?) is so strong that to remove the rubber either peels the foam (leaving a layer of foam on the rubber that doesn't come off easily) or one risks ruining the rubber (by stretching) long before it can be removed from the foam. UnDu doesn't work, I tried. Meer Images & ABC Wizard both mount their stamps this way & they do such a beautiful job of it with the way they index the wood & trim everything that I leave them as is.
