Default Help needed. Residual glue removal

I removed the warning sticker on the ham can, but canít get the residual glue off. I tried using alcohol swabs, but no real benefit. Does anyone know a way to remove the sticky residue?

Nope. Just spray on a rag, and wipe off.

Lacquer thinner will do it.

wd-40 works. Alcohol works better for me but you need to use the 90% or higher otherwise you will be there for a while. Goo gone didn't work well for me when I used it.

Default Another solution

Goo-Gone works really well. Spray it on. Wait a couple of minutes and the old adhesive wipes away
