I would like to know how to remove built up hair spray on wood.

On wood I would use some soapy wood cleaner, you can buy it in most supermarkets. The kind of thing that is used for cleaning wooden floors and furniture. If you only need a little, ask around amongst your friends someone may give you just a little bit (that would be extremely frugal).

How can I remove hairspray build-up on the sink in the bathroom?
By Elaine B. from Trenton, TN
As stated in the archive link a paste of baking soda with a bit of water should take care of it. Or try a little bit or rubbing alcohol on a rag. If you have a used dryer sheet the texture of those work well with either the baking soda or rubbing alcohol to help scrub with. (10/25/2009)
I use a solution of ammonia and water to clean almost everything.
About a 1/4 cup of ammonia in a quart of water in a spray bottle. (10/25/2009)
Be careful. I once dyed my hair in sink, then cleaned it with bleach, the powder scrub, well it did not look good enough, so I used liquid bleach, then later to make sure it was immaculate I used ammonia. Oh it was perfect. While my boyfriend and friend and I watched a movie after dinner, we heard popping sounds; the sink exploded! Try explaining that
to your landlord and the boyfriend. It is funny now, I was horrified at the time. (10/29/2009)
To get hair spray out of your hair, put a little baking soda in your hand with your shampoo and it will remove freeze spray as I use it daily. Works.

Pledge furniture spray easily removed hair spray from my furniture. Just spray, wait a couple seconds and wipe off. In small crevices spray and use toothbrush. So easy you won't believe it. (09/24/2008)
