I had 4 sticky spots on my hardwood floors from some duck tape I had used to adhere a rug to the floor. Probably not the wisest form of adhesive haha… none the less, the rug is no longer there, which has left 4 nasty looking sticky spots on my floor, big ones. I was going to go out and buy some goo-gone to remove the sticky stuff… but my mom said “I bet you can figure out a DIY recipe.” So I did!
I found one that actually works and had to share. Its super simple
3 parts baking soda, 1 part oil (I used cheap canola oil, my floor doesnt care if its gmo)
I just eye’d this measurement btw. It isn’t rocket science :) – poured in my baking soda into a mason jar (small one) and then poured on top of it a little oil. Stirred it up and it made a paste… It wasn’t super thick, was kind of like syrup you’d pour on pancakes. I then used a tooth brush I had for cleaning and went to rubbing. The spots I had were very sticky… VERY very sticky… so it took some work rubbing this to get it off… but it did come off!! ALL OF IT.
SO I saved a trip to walmart and used two ingredients I already had at home to get the job done.
Amazing what a little baking soda will do. I swear, baking soda is awesome. I use it for everything now.
Hope this works for y’all! :) Pin this if you use it to share the love.
