Are you confusing Goo Gone, with Goof Off? I've never had Goo Gone
damage plastic.

This is a timely thread for me, since I just bought a bunch of the
stuff. I'm trying to get old tape off of an old dining room table that
will be my new computer desk. The table was used for years as a desk by
my grandmother, but she taped a sheet of formica on the top.... why, I
don't know!
