I have a friendly cycling TT in the morning – 5:45AM to be exact. So while I was in the process of pumping up and putting my race wheels on my race bike I noticed that my race helmet still had a race sticker on it.
I know that this sticker is primarily for the photographers. But, I always follow all of the rules during a race. If the race packet says put the sticker on the helmet, well, I put the sticker on the helmet. I don’t want no infraction.
However, the stickers always go on easier than they come off. The sticker on my race helmet had been there for about 9 months.
I picked at the sticker for a little while and then ran to the garage.
horrible looking and not aero I’m sure
I returned with my trusty bottle of Goo Gone. I bought this bottle years ago when I need to remove a pesky sticker from a piece of acrylic. I did not want to scratch the surface and the Goo Gone worked like a charm. I have been using it ever since.
I sprayed a paper towel a few times and then dabbed the sticker. I let it sit for a few minutes.
your soaking in it
I wish I could say that the goo gone infused sticker just rubbed right off. I had to use my finger nails but in about a minute the helmet was looking like new. Actually better than new – it was shinny like no bodies business.
brand spanking new
The amazing thing is that I have had this bottle of Goo Gone for at least two years. I have used this on my helmets and my bikes. I know people that use Goo Gone to polish their bikes. They come out greasy free and sparkling! I have damped a rag and cleaned the bikes up and even taken it to the car to remove bugs and what not. But look at how long a bottle will last – that is the amazing part.
Full bottle after 2 years
Do you see that line above the label. I have used like 13 Nano liters of the stuff. This bottle should last me, at the rate, forever!!
