Duct Tape on Car

Does anyone know how to remove duct tape from the outside of a car? It is on the paint and around the back windshield. I am currently using Orange Blast, an auto degreaser. It is working, but very slowly. Any faster suggestions that would save the paint on my car would be great.

Have you tried a hairdryer?...You may have tape residue left, but you can remove it with mineral spirits, lighter fluid, Goop or turpentine.

I asked my DH, who works on cars. He said to get adhesive cleaner at Home Depot or an auto parts store.

Try some shortening, let sit for 15 minutes. Wipe off,

then clean as usual!! It will soften the glue in the duct tape= My Hubby got burned with Hot Tar on a roof job- & it worked Great on removing the tar after it had cooled on Him!! Try a second time, if needed!

I had the same problem so I did a search and found this thread. I used WD-40 and it worked great, even on the weather stripping! Thanks!

I had packing tape residue on my fender. I tried using rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball. I saturated the ball and really rubbed. It took a while but it did dissolve it with NO damage to the car's paint. Good luck.
