Goo Gone vs Krud Kutter

I started work on remodeling my Grandma's Kitchen playset. Here's a video on which product I found the best at removing stickers from the plastic:

  1. Aww you made the comparison! Thank you!

    I don't buy a lot of doll furniture, so I never have to remove stickers but I normally get issues with price stickers when I buy new stuff. I use nail polish remover to remove the stickiness left behind after I peel the sticker off. That Goo Gone experiment is pretty impressive if all you have to do is lift the paper and there is no residue.

    1. You're welcome, Oly - Don't know if I pronounced your name correctly, but at least I spelled it right, lol.

  2. Krud Kutter was very helpful when our garage door got painted on by some teenagers.

    2. LOL. Well, we kind of expected it. Every year before the last home football game at our local high school, the senior members of the marching band get their homes tp'd and their cars decorated with some kind of paint, which is specifically made for cars. When our daughter's last year in marching band came around, we got the same treatment. However, since neither of our cars were home, the kids wrote messages on our garage door, and we found the paint much harder to remove from that, than from a car. :)

  3. Cool video. I was betting on Goo Gone from the get go because I've used both in the past. I've found Goo Gone to be best for projects like this one. For me, Krud Kutter is only useful for removing paint, not adhesives. And even then, I actually prefer Goof Off for cleaning up paint overspray and dried latex paint.

    1. Jewell, I had originally purchased the Krud to see if I could open up doll bodies - an experiment I tried in this old post. It worked okay and I still had a big amount of it left over, so might as well see if it was good for something else. I'll keep the paint removing in mind though!

  4. Awesome post! I had never heard of Krud Kutter. I have used Goo Gone, so I will just stick with it. Thanks for the comparison!

    1. You're welcome, Georgia Girl! Yeah, I wouldn't buy Krud Kutter if you've already got Goo Gone.

  5. And the winner is . . . . Goo Gone! This was very helpful as I have 4 old doll houses to work on. I don't mind waiting as long as the effort is less! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Phyllis, that reminds me I meant to put a fight bell sound effect in the video at "the winner is" part and I forgot all about it, lol. Good luck with your doll houses.

  6. Cool video. I have both products on hand and never thought to use Krud Kutter for sticker removal. Krud Kutter is an awesome product for cleaning, and the one that I use for most of my house cleaning. I was introduced to it when I was getting certified for home staging. Have been using it ever since.

    1. For cleaning, Vanessa? Hmm. I usually use 409 for cleaning, but I have stains on my countertops that 409 hasn't removed. I shall give Krud a try.

    2. Well color me appreciative. Our deep fryer left greasy gunk built up on the granite counter tops. I tried just about everything to get it off with no success and had temporarily given up until I read your comment, Vanessa. I decided to give the Krud Kutter a try and it worked!

  7. Nice video and comparison. I had never heard of Krud Kutter before, so I just learned something new. I'll keep that in mind if I ever need to remove paint. I use Goo Gone (although in my head I always want to call it 'Good Be Gone') all the time for stickers. I discovered pretty quickly that I have to give it hours before being able to just lift that sticker off. So I plan ahead to give it time.

    I also have to agree that I prefer it's easy to determine when product is product. That almost like water thing can be scary.

    1. Thanks, Janainah! I know - they could have at least added some type of coloring to it. But I guess they figure they don't have to cater to fools who pour Krud into a drinking cup and forget that it's Krud and not water.

  8. Thanks for the comparison test. I don't think I can get Krud Kutter here but I definitely use Goo Gone a lot. I started because if you apply it thinly with a paintbrush you can remove labels off books and magazines with it without damaging them or getting a grease stain. On dolls I've used it to dissolve that stiffening gel on their hair.
    After seeing your video, I'm going to use the GG to get stickers off a Barbie car so I can paint it another color than its present lemon yellow.

    1. Maricha, I didn't know that. I have only used it to remove stickers and written ink (by the thrift store) from plastic. I never tried to remove it from anything porous like paper because I figured it would discolor it or leave a stain. Good to know!

    2. I also thought it might at least leave a greasy stain and was thinking I'd have to use chalk to remove that, but it just evaporates.
      I have only used it on glossy magazine covers and books though,since that's where they put stickers and labels, and really try to only apply the GG to the label ( hence the need for a paintbrush). Instead of pulling off the label right away I leave it alone until it's dried up as if I hadn't done a thing. Then when I do pull the label it just comes off as if the glue disappeared, there's not even a little blob to tell you where it was.
