Default Ladies of BC.....HELP

Ok, I need to know how I can remove Hairspray off of my black lacquer furniture without damaging the finish (if it isnt already damamged by the hairspray )

There is quite a bit of overspray on my dresser, and while I have not yet tried to remove it since im worried about damaging the finish, I wanted to know if you have any home remedies to take care of the problem?????

Guys are welcome to reply, but I dont know how many of you use hairspray. lol


Thanks!!!

Lmao no. Get a warm washcloth and wipe it down, then take glass cleaner and clean it, and whala!

Good luck. I have to scrub down our sink area every month or so from all the hairspray, and I have to use 409 and a good scrub sponge and rub like mad to get it good and clean.

Vinegar...yes, I'm telling you to douche your dresser.

Vinegar is acedic acid...it will eat the hairspray but not the finish. If you're concerned...test it first in one area. I'd recommend mixing 3/4 parts vinegar with 1/4 part HOT water. The heat will help bring it up too.

Vinegar is a natural remedy that will remove glue, stickers, wallpaper paste, and is even a natural air freshner that will remove cigarette smell from a house...among other things.

What kind of vinegar: white preferably..apple cider is okay too... red wine is more acedic..becareful with that...and I wouldn't recommend balsamic vinegar because that'* got other stuff in it for flavor.

Yes...I used to work for a vinegar manufacturer....

a soft cloth with water and a little shampoo, or use a spray called Krud Kutter or Goof Off. I'm a painter by trade and I use goof off on lacquered surfaces all the time to remove paint drips.

Just plain old everyday water, we wash the stuff out of our hair everyday.....This may sound like a stupid question, but why do you have hairspray in the first place

I like how he automatically presented the question to the ladies, stating the age-old sterotype that women do all the cleaning
