Cleaning those vinyl coated closet shelves....

clueless1959July 30, 2012

I recently bought a new house an the closet shelves was all gummy an sticky from age. Being avictim of more time than money so to speak I set out to clean the shelves.

Plain old mineral spirits took the gummy sticky dirt off but left a slight greasy feeling that the water hose out back took right off.

I don't even remember what other products I'd tried on the closet shelves nothing was working tho till I tried the mineral spirits which I had leftover from another project.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Thanks, that's good to know. I often reach for mineral spirits when trying to remove gunk.
