Answer: 
You need to use caution when using Goof-Off to clean any polymers, as it is a solvent. Select a spot that isn't easily noticed, and test the spot to see if the Goof-Off will dissolve the plastic/polymer.

Answer: 
Goof Off is really a solvent, not a cleaner. By that, I mean that it's more of a stain and glue remover (great at removing price tags and their adhesive backings from gifts) and not something I'd readily recommend for vinyl siding and such. I guess it depends on what is on your vinyl, under the soffits, and on the gutters. If they're just dirty from regular mud and wind blown dust and dirt, as well as Read More
Goof Off is really a solvent, not a cleaner. By that, I mean that it's more of a stain and glue remover (great at removing price tags and their adhesive backings from gifts) and not something I'd readily recommend for vinyl siding and such. I guess it depends on what is on your vinyl, under the soffits, and on the gutters. If they're just dirty from regular mud and wind blown dust and dirt, as well as the occasional bird with aim, I'd say something more specific to that application will be better. (A pressure washer, which can be rented or purchased, will definitely do the job 99% of the time.)
The ZEP products are highly rated, and if you search the HD website for "vinyl siding cleaner", you'll find a wide variety of products more designed for your application than Goof Off. Many of the products you'll see will hook up directly to a standard garden hose -- no pressure washer required. If you spilled paint or glue or something else on the house somehow, then Goof Off may be the product, but for general purpose vinyl siding and gutter cleaning, I'd have to recommend something far more specific to the task. Goof Off may actually work (haven't tried it, so I don't know), but I do know that, over the years, I have used products designed for cleaning what you're asking about with success.
My main concern with Goof Off on siding and soffits and gutters is what it will or won't do to the paint. I don't know how it'll react with that where the surface is metal, vinyl, and so on, so if you do try it, go in an inconspicuous corner and test it first to be safe. I'd really just go with the more specific product though. Read Less

Rubber, plastic or synthetic gloves will work. Make sure that you are not allergic to latex before using late gloves. Most protective gloves will state on the package the level of protection.

Answer: 
If the paint has thoroughly dried, there's a good chance that the Goof-Off will not remove all of the Latex paint on the first attempt. However, if you're willing to spend a little time on the project, using a small brush and a few rounds of cleaning will generally get rid of all, or most of, the Latex paint.
Good luck.

Answer: 
Funny you should ask. My partner spilled latex paint in my carpeted van. It was a lot of paint and nothing ever got rid of it all, however Goof-Off did soften the latex and helped to lessen the devastation. It can widen the paint stain. I'd be sure to work from the edges to the center of the stain.

Answer: 
Yes, but like any stain remover, test it in an inconspicuous area first. (All stain removers tend to have this warning.) I accidentally got some paint on a nice cotton shirt just a week or so ago, and when researching how to remove it online, "Goof Off" was specifically mentioned by name. It will depend on the material and the dye used to color the fabric.

It will depend on the material and the dye used to color the fabric.
Since you have said that it's on the shower curtain, perhaps test rubbing some Goof Off into a bottom corner or other not-really-visible area and see how it performs. It's also best to pre-treat to a certain degree using regular dish soap, warm water, and a toothbrush (not the same one you brush your teeth with, but a <$2 drugstore brush will do). Peel off as much paint if you can (if any), and get the stain as thin as possible before resorting the Goof Off. The stuff will work, but the smell is quite strong.
Good luck. Read Less

No sooner applied and it is almost done. The almost perfect application for goof-off.
Apply and allow to sit for a few minutes and remove the old carpet pad using smooth hand scraper and being careful not to scratch flooring.
It is that easy. A superior product such as Goof Off works again.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paint and polyurethane remover This worked on our 60 yearold hardwood floor we found under Carpetcarpet. There was so much paint and old varnish we didn't want to use a drumsander and go through several belts that would get gummed up. This stuff worked great. August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT! Pulled up 20 year old carpet and padding. The padding stuck to the hardwood floor like tar. No way was I going to scrap is entire room. Researched this product, read reviews. Bought it, and wow does it work nicely. Tips: small areas, don't let dry, used a cheap paint brush to apply and work floor. Ton of clean up rags but works GREAT! September 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works! This product helped us remove old caulking and latex paint from the concrete that surrounds our front door. The instructions say to apply it with a cloth, but we used a paint brush. It worked almost immediately to soften the caulking, at which point it could be scraped off with a razor and wire brush. We're very pleased with the result. August 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I have been using this product for a very long time and it is unbelievable. August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kind of working It is working but it is drying out to quickly. Had to use a lot of it to take some marker off. Other products from the competition don't have this issue. August 16, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick stripper I am a bit confused as this comes in a large container but then says not to use on more than a small area and not to use on floors. I did not see those instructions until I had gotten well into stripping some old carpet backing turned gunk on large area of floor. It worked well. I poured it on, let it sit a few seconds and scrapped it off. It dissolved the gunk quickly. I don't know exactly what I was stripping off but this worked. June 28, 2016
