Goo Gone and Fiestaware

If you have read my site for long, you have probably noticed that many of my food items are served/photographed on Fiestaware. I have loved Fiestaware for years. In fact, I love all stoneware dishes and bowls and have collected quite a few over the years.

My fiestaware collection began a few years ago when I came across a set of used late 80’s, early 90’s, pastel Fiestaware set for sale for a really good price. As in incredibly cheap.

Now, I prefer the bolder brighter fiestaware dishes, but for the price I could not pass it up. And my Fiestaware collection began with those few pieces.

Over the last few years I have collected more and more pieces, mainly in the white/off white color, but also some in the red and blue. And most of the pieces were birthday or Christmas gifts from my husband. Yes, he knows that I love dishes and he has been very generous in helping my collection grow.

I was recently contacted by the folks at Goo Gone, about working with them on a project. They did not tell me a lot of details, but I have used and loved their product for years, so I was happy to work with them.

Well, when I received a box from Goo Gone and opened it up to find a few new pieces of Fiestaware, I was quite surprise and happy. I mean who would not love to receive dishes in the mail. But I soon realized why they had sent me dishes.

Some of the dishes had stickers all over them and they were challenging me to remove the stickers using Goo Gone.

I have used Goo Gone before. I love their stuff, but I had never thought to use it on dishes. And I don’t think I would have ever tried it on my Fiestaware, because you see I like my Feistaware and want to keep nice. But I was up for the challenge and was willing to give it a try.

I put a little Goo Gone on the sticker and let it sit for just a few seconds, really not long at all.

I rubbed just a little bit, and the sticker came right off. With no problems at all. It just peeled right off. I could not believe it came off so easy, because we all know what a pain stickers can be to remove.

I rubbed the Goo Gone off and looked closely because I was curious if it damaged the dish at all.

And no it did not. The sticker was gone and the dish was perfectly fine. I even tried the Goo Gone with a plate I had bought recently at Ross to use in photos and it worked great on it as well. I had to let the Goo Gone set a little while longer on that plate, but it came off with no problems at all. This was a plate that was sitting on my counter for days, because I had dreaded trying to get the sticker off, with the Goo Gone it came off with no problems at all.

I now have a new use for Goo Gone!

Here is a quick video I did of how easy Goo Gone is to use.

 

Disclaimer: I was sent Feistaware dishes, free Goo Gone product, and a flip video to record my Goo Gone experience, but my thoughts and opinions are my own. I have used Goo Gone for years and it was a product I loved long before I worked with them on this campaign.

  1. I heart my Fiestaware collection. In fact, we were looking at it in Macy’s just this afternoon as I debated adding more serving dishes, as we’re doing Thanksgiving this year on Fiestaware instead of my Noritake china.

    And oh my word, I can’t imagine what kind of deal you must have gotten on your original stuff, but boy howdy!! How cool is that?!!

  2. I love goo gone, a mom’s best friend….and my mom has a ton of Fiesta ware…………

  3. I can’t believe you’ve never used Goo Gone on dishes before! That’s the first and most often use for me as I also love buying used dishes at estate sales, garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I found a small 3 oz. bottle at Dollar Tree for $1 to try it out, now I keep it handy in the cupboard.

  4. I love goo gone for removing sticker residue, but always wonder whether it would strip off whatever it is underneath the residue. I wish they would provide a better chart or graph on what I can use it on and what I can’t. : )

    I have been using goo gone for while now. It is a great product! I had a door once that had the glass part glued in, and when the sun hit the door, the glue would get hot anf run down the door and I tried the goo gone and it all came off. I love it!

  6. I love goo gone! It works great on the “red marker” that most thrift stores use on books, glass, plastic and the bottoms of shoes. Be careful on books, it will leave a red smear on non-coated book covers.

  7. It’s nice to see so many Goo Gone fans in one place! Thanks for the kind words! And, by the way ladies, if you visit the Tips Tab on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/googonebrand), you can view helpful removal tips for all types of different surfaces. And, of course, we’d love to have you add your own!
