To get adhesive or residue of tape off of something, I use a Magic Rub Eraser. You can buy them at office supply stores, art supply stores, and sometimes Walmart. Depending on how bad the residue is, you may have to work on it for awhile to get it come off, but it will come off.

Use a product called "goo gone" you can get at any hardware store -- cheaper, but more time consuming is to use butter or anything oily to break down the adhesive and then Windex to clean up the residue. Good luck

Have you tried nail polish remover? I personally have had good luck with it. It had no problem removing duct tape residue or electrical tape residue. Nail polish remover is one of my favorite cleaners great for ink stains!

Scrape with a razor blade held sort of flat and then clean with glass cleaner.

The cheapest way: Use cooking oil. Rub it on thick with a rag. Dab it really well. Let it set then use a clean cloth or plastic spoon to scrape it off. Then use some vinegar and water in a spray bottle just like Windex to clean off the oil. Good luck. Tammie

For adhesive on anything, use lighter fluid on a small piece of cotton or p. towel, then clean with dish soap or whatever. If it's stubborn, some commercial adhesive is really think & dense, just let a little fluid soak it for a bit, then use the cotton ball soaked with lighter fluid. Just use a very small piece of cotton or paper towel, cause the bigger it is, the more lighter fluid you need. If it gets coated with the adhesive, use a new piece. It works better than polish remover or anything else I've tried. Haven't found any adhesive that can't be removed with it, have done it for over 30 years.

Use hand sanitizer. The residue will come right off and the mirrors will sparkle. ~Janette~

I use just plain alcohol with a cotton ball or tissue to remove tape residue from many things it works well on scissors too.

Plain old rubbing alcohol works great. I use cotton balls & just rub it away.
