Rubbing alcohol works and a little elbow grease. So does a bit of scouring powder (Ajax, Comet, etc.) rubbed into a small paste in water (choose carefully what you do it to). So do good erasers, also (ink eraser from your office supply section), that is.

Rubbing alcohol works the best! I was a dental assistrant for alot of years and adhesive on dental impression trays came off best with rubbing alcohol. (I tried alot of different adhesive removers.)

Try, Peanut Butter, Baby Oil, Vegetable Oil or Goo Gone. They all work.

Goo-Gone works very well on this. Follow the directions and your problem should be history.
