The "gum" of sticky fly-paper that has " leaked" over furniture and shelfware can be removed without causing injury to either furniture or bottles.

The "gum" of sticky fly-paper, while being quite adhesive, is easily dissolved with alcohol (grain or wood) or oil of turpentine. Alcohol will not injure the shelfware, but it should not be used on varnished furniture; in the latter case turpentine should be used.
