Removing Sticky Residue

I am removing contact paper from my kitchen cabinet shelves and it is leaving a sticking residue. What can I use to clean this sticking residue off?

Thank you.

My daughter had a binder that she couldn't get the sticker residue off.
So I just used baby oil. It works like a charm! (08/11/2007)

I have usually used nail varnish remover to remove sticker residue but tried your tip and used deodorant. It easily removed the residue, that alcohol and vegetable oil could not, from the lid of an aquarium. (09/18/2007)

I tried oil and it didn't work at all, WD-40 did the trick. It leaves a bit of a smell though. (01/03/2008)

Just used nail polish remover on my $200 wallet. I was scared at first, but it worked amazingly. Thank-you (01/24/2008)

Toothpaste works rather nicely as well. Just removed a sticker from the top of my TV, put some toothpaste on it, and it slid right off! (02/10/2008)

WD 40 & a Soft Toothbrush did the trick. It required a bit of effort, but it worked! Definitely use a all purpose cleaner afterwards followed by a few wipes with damp cloth. Thanks for the hints, someone has gotta tells these companies to find a better way to attach warning notices. Way too much work! Ciao~ (07/08/2008)

I used Mennen's deodorant to remove a sticky substance from the back of my telephone. We had used duct tape to tape a phone number to the back of the phone and when we removed it, the entire phone was a sticky mess. The deodorant removed it immediately. (07/11/2008)
