Try Goo-Gone, it is in a bottle about the size of nail polish remover and can be found at stores like Walmart.

I wonder if I'm using different stuff because when I peeled the contact paper off the coffee table after one of the kids went crazy with it there was no residue left. It seems like a lot of people are having the issue though so maybe it's the surface of the table that didn't stick too hard to the glue? It's one of those metallic looking tables but it's not metal I don't know exactly what it's made of. Anyway, the contact paper I used was this one: ... lack-silhouette-swirl-contact-paper/
