I use %90 Isopropyl alcohol and it cleans it right off.
For years I've found it worked on EVERYTHING with adhesives.
Urine helps eeright:
Joking aside, everything that has been stated in this thread works to a certain degree. I for one am quite fond of using petrol, meths, or turps. Just be careful if you use petrol, it has a tendency to eat through some types of plastic.
+1 for meths. Eucalyptus oil has the benefit of spelling nice though
Mineral Turpentine (aka turps) is the best. It makes it so effortless to remove.
If the leftover glue is on glass, wipe it with turps then use a razor blade (like this) and scrape it off (don't worry it won't scratch the glass). Scrape it off straight away while it's still wet as the turps evaporates quickly. It should come off very easily.
IPA all the way.
Medical benzine (band-aid remover) is perfect. It does not melt plastic like acetone (nail-polish remover) and usually gets rid of the glue in a single swipe. I use it to remove stickers all the time and it gets rid of everything and leaves the surface pristine. Almost no pressure is required.
akasa TIM clean
Got lots of bottles around for cleaing chips so easy to use on stickers as well
I usually take my time removing them, and if something is left behind I just leave it there, it'll come off by itself after time.
I use cajuput oil
Take your pick...
I use gaffatape or something very sticky to take the sticky substance off. Works perfect for me. It won't leave more sticky substance as it's only there for a few secounds. Don't do it on components though.
I found over the years that Isopropanol is the most effective stuff you can use. Let it penetrate for a couple seconds and there you go, you will remove any sticker residue with no effort. Its safe on most plastic too...
sorry if already answered but the easiest way to remove it is first with white-spirits to remove the sticky stuff, followed by methylated-spirit to remove the white-spirits.
hot water and thumb O_O
