I would try soap and warm water, or acetone followed by alcohol.

I agree with Rick … and next time use a card scraper!

I just start with mineral spirits. Works like a champ.

I would have used the dreaded belt sander to remove the tag…..... I’d still use it even now…... Jerry (in Tucson)

Now, the wood is soaked with Goo Gone and, since it is mineral spirits, glue won’t stick to it.

Not mineral spirits… according to the MSDS, it’s mostly kerosene (CAS #64742-47-8) with a touch of limonene and orange extract.

Mineral spirits would have been my first choice as well… but Acetone will probably be best now to remove and dry out the kerosene.

Cheers,
Brad

Ouch! The red oak at the HD here is asking about $7.50/bf.

I believe Goo Gone has some nonvolatile oils in it besides anything like mineral spirits. The MS will evaporate but it’ll take some time of the other oils to go away. I’d try wiping with alcohol/laquer thinner/acetone to clean the oils out.

Another vote for acetone here.
