    I guess you can say I am in a sticky situation. No pun intended. A few months ago, I bought a bag of caramel corn. Without my knowing, the contents somehow spilled into one of the drawers of my nice mahogany wood end table. I didn’t realize it at first, as I rarely use that end table. I was doing some summer cleaning the other day, and noticed several dried, sticky globs of caramel stuck to the drawers. Does anyone know any tips and/or household remedies to dissolve the caramel?

    the caramel corn is made from brown sugar, corn syrup, margarine, salt, baking soda, and salt.

    Does it need to be stored in the fridge, or can I just leave it on the kitchen counter?
