Yes Goo gone is strong stuff, and needs a solvent to get it off as well! We use it by the gallon at work and it will make some plastics look new, but you have to go over it with alcohol to get the greasy coating off. I find WD40 works wonders as well, and does not leave much residue. In fact cleaning and drying out a fishing reel is about all I would ever use it for.
