I just peel them off and remove any residue with a cabinet scraper.

We had this once before, and the hair drier/paint stripper works best.

John the only stupid question is the one you dont ask.

Silly as it maybe but I put Sticky Stuff Remover into eBay and bought a bottle of just that, it's great stuff and has worked on everything from tar on my car to label residue.

John I use lighter fuel it it is a very good solvent and it does not leave any residue as it evapourates very quickly it can be used on many surfaces but test on small area if working with plastic or rubber Lighter fuel is available from most supermarkets and news agents

Hi John

There's another one called Goo Gone, which you can use on almost any surface (it also removes chewing gum!). It also smells nicer than most of the others.
