As one can see it had a lot of sticky residue on the wood veneer and it was going to need a cleaning agent that could dissolve the remains of the tape without damaging the wood.
I started first with the top drawer and the cleaning results were dramatic compared to the bottom drawers that had not been addressed.
What I used were simple items that can be found in any home and I used items specifically that are found under the kitchen sink to remove the tape residue from the chest. For this project I utilized dish soap and vinegar.
Then I mixed together about a half cup of vinegar and a tablespoon of dish soap.
This simple solution was powerful enough with just a little bit of pressure from my finger tips applied to a cleaning cloth that had been saturated in the dish soap/vinegar to gently rub off the tape without damaging any of the surface of the chest. This is the results below.
