If the finish is varnish, a liitle goo gone, or even paint thinner, on a rag would probably do it. If the residue isn't all dried up yet, sprinkling some talcum powder or corn starch on it, and rubbing with a cloth, may get the goo to roll up and rub off.

You can also use your old pantyhose to keep your onions fresh. Basically you put an onion in then tie a knot, put another one in and tie another knot till you either run out of onions or hose...then hang on a nail.... I would recommend freshly laundered hose....lol

Brenda, how does that keep onions fresh? Is there something undesireable about keeping them all in the same bag. I've had some problems with onions to the point that I buy one at a time and keep it in the refrigerator.

LOL Angela. I think those compression stockings are strong enough to hold a door onto a vehicle!

Ok, I'm crazy for admitting this on a public forum, but here's a funny story...I had to wear those things after having a medical procedure on my legs. These things came way up to the top of my thigh but were so tight they would roll down and cut off all circulation. My remedy was to take a couple of those elastic things that hold bed sheet corners and hook one to my bra and run the other all the way down to the stocking. It worked like a charm, but I was praying all the way to work that I wouldn't get in a car accident and have my secret discovered!

Maybe I should market it as the garter for the over 50 crowd! Could be the next greatest thing since...duct tape! laughing laughing embarassed
