    Lighter fluid works way better than WD-40

    In addition to any of the above mentioned, I've had god luck using a hot-air blow dryer on the glue residue, first, to soften it.

    Goo Gone as said before, but I also use Ronson's lighter fluid for those impossible jobs.

    Gasoline

    I've found rubbing alcohol not strong enough to break it down & industrial lacquer thinner too strong melts the sticky residue into a monkey snot substance.


    Gasoline on a rag (in a well ventilated area) turns the sticky residue into the stuff like they use on magazines or glossy mailers, rolls right off.

    GooGone works well if it's the right consistency "goo". If it's too sticky (like, the crap left behind by crap duct tape), using a rag with rubbing alcohol then rubbing in 90 changes. "Smear" the goo one way, smear it again 90 ... comes off superfast. I had to clean a ton of whiteboards for the schoolboard one fall, the smearing method was the only thing that worked.

    I use goo gone or WD-40. Goof Off is too aggressive, depending on what you are using it on.
