Hello Richard. I have used a product called googone. But I have found that any oil will do the job.Just rub the oil on the spot where the label was. Keep rubbing and soon the label residue will be gone the just wash with soap and hot water.

G'Day Richard from South Australia

Purchase a bottle of orange oil, just a few dabs on cotton wool and hey presto no more sticky goo and the plus is your left with a wonderful smell of citrus.

Here in South Australia we are able to purchase a product. It is not an aerosol item (I am allergic to them) just a pump pack spray called Orange Oil, we kept one in the toilet, much nicer than the 'pretend aroma of citrus.

Good Luck.
