Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leo9 Removed old self-stick tile adhesive and old paint
Underneath vinyl flooring and then a layer of self-stick linoleum tiles, we uncovered the original 1952 tile floor with splotches of paint on it. After Goof Off Pro and a little elbow grease, it looks terrific! I did have the window open, fans running and I wore a respirator. The remover did end up dissolving my acid proof rubber gloves, so make sure you wear gloves that can stand up to xylene and acetone

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vic Saved Coral Stone Floor
We had just finished laying a new gorgeous coral stone floor at the entrance of the headquarters of a large client; Coral stone is very porous material. This floor had not even been sealed yet when disaster struck. The roofing contractor spilled a 5 gal. bucket of scalding hot tar right on it. We started immediately to carefully remove/scrape away the excess tar but it was leaving behind a huge and ugly patch of tar embedded inn it. It looked like the floor was ruined for good. I thought the client was going to die and we were looking at a potentially very costly repair (e.g. removal, new labor, material, delays, etc) and possibly legal issues.
While the moaning and apologies were going on and without wasting any time, I had 4 one-gal cans of Goof Off brought from Home Depot and immediately poured and spread one can on the tar. You could see it starting to work right away lifting and dissolving the mess. It was then mopped and the operation repeated 3 more times. By the end of this process, the floor looked like new. Actually, the client was impressed by our resourcefulness as he was convinced that nothing could have been done to save his floor.
At the end of the day, the entrance to the building looked gorgeous again and we had a happy - although perhaps a little stressed out - client.
Goof Off may not work on every situation but it has helped me many times and it may work when nothing else will.

Effective--it works. This review requires more verbage so this is being utilized to satisfy this rerquirement.

We have always used the regular Goof-Off. Recently we were removing glue (from old glued down carpet) from 100 year old wooden floors. The regular Goof-Off did a great job! So when we ran out of the product, we went back to Home Depot to buy more. We saw the Professional Strength version and thought "Hum, professional strength will be even more effective". WRONG. It actually DOES NOT work as well for glue removal from wood floors. The formula is different from the original Goof-Off. So now I have nearly a full gallon of product that I cannot use and have had to purchase another gallon of the regular Goof-Off. Possibly the professional strength will work for some other application in the future. Time will tell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JM2412 It works AWESOME!!
I pulled up a rug only to find out the hardwood floors were covered in paint. The person in the paint dept told me about Goof Off, so I gave it a try and to my amazement it worked. I was able to remove all the paint off the floor and prepared it to be refinished.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SaveAShield Definitely a miracle remover
Definitely not your typical adhesive remover, you probably wouldn't believe something could remove oil or gum without a ton of work and/or no luck at all but this stuff actually takes it out with A LOT less effort. Use this with a gum remover tool and you can take off ANYTHING. Gum in the cup holder? no problem, black spots on the carpet degreaser/cleaner not getting out after you scrub it? put some on it jab at it with the gum remover tool and use an extractor (or a towel if you don't own an extractor) and it will look like it was never there. If you use it on a seat BE CAREFUL though, will stain if you don't extract it quickly. I've worked as a professional detailer for 5 years and never had anything that worked as great as this does. I HIGHLY recommend giving this stuff a try from the casual cleaner to professional cleaners.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tim Overpriced acetone
This is just acetone that you can buy at Home Depot for $13/gallon. I can't recommend this for removing vinyl floor adhesives since it evaporates too fast hindering penetration. I'm sure it's good for minor cleaning but so is acetone, and that's about $7 cheaper by the gallon.
