How do I get rid of goo gone smell on my game?

8 replies 798 views Edited Oct 22, 2013
So about a week ago I got a new PS Vita game for my birthday, but I didn't want the GameStop sticker on it, so I peeled it off and used goo gone to get rid of the adhesive. A week later the case (and whatever game gets placed in the case) still reeks of goo gone. How do I get rid of the smell?

I'd hang it outside to air out (remove the paper items and the game first)

I believe its petroleum based so it's gonna take awhile to let the smell go away. Maybe take a paper towel with febreeze sprayed on it and a gentle wipe down may work.

I may be old, but I still love to game.

Pong, Atari 2600, NES, Super NES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis with Cd, Atari Jaguar with Cd, PS, PS2, Xbox 360, and now...PS4.

Don't put the game near your nose. Stop smelling the game and eventually the smell will go away.

Windex or any store brand window cleaner always worked for me.

I'd find another means of storing your possession, maybe wash the case in tomato juice and hydrogen peroxide? Heard it works on skunk spray...
