Learn about how to clean stickiness off plastic coated closet racks. Find tips for cleaning sticky surfaces.
LESLIE: Alright, now we’re going to head over to Florida where Harrison is working on a closet project. You’ve got some sticky racks? What’s going on?
HARRISON: Yes, the closet racks are kind of steel racks with a white, plastic coating on them.
HARRISON: And as they get old, they get sticky. And I was wondering if there’s any kind of solution I could use to remove the stickiness to them.
LESLIE: Have you tried cleaning the surface with rubbing alcohol?
HARRISON: No, I didn’t try alcohol.
LESLIE: Rubbing alcohol, I find, is like the instant goo-gone master. You can also use a product exactly called Goo Gone or Goof Off or Goo Off; there’s a million of them out there. But I would try just with a cotton swab with some rubbing alcohol just to see. It’s not going to damage the surface and it really does a great job of removing any sort of stickiness.
HARRISON: OK, I’ll try that. Thanks for your help.
