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.
