I normally remove the sticky part of price labels/tape from gifts with cotton wool and baby oil.

WD40

It will dissolve the adhesive and you can just wipe off with a cloth.

A ha!! Lovely thank you!!

That'll teach you for brown taping the wing back on.

Get a roof rack next time.

if wd40 doesnt work try either mayo or some tar remover.

seriously??? Lol dont want to pour mayo all over the floor for nothing

yes, seriously. I use it on the sticky stuff left on glasses, vases, golf clubs etc where the sticker has been put on and you can't get the horrible sticky stuff off.

Let me know if it works ....

Works a treat everytime ....... don't use your best helmans though, get some cheap mayo ....lol
