I used tape to cover a broken car window. Now that the window has been repaired, tape residue is on the hood and trunk of the car. I don't want to ruin the paint, but want to remove the tape residue. Help.

I use Avon Skin So Soft bath oil. It doesnt damage car finishes. I have even used it to remove tar! There is another product called goo gone that is available in stores that I heard works too.
try baby oil on a tissue, or peanut butter-
sounds crazy, but both work very well on sticky adhesive residue and do little damage-
(Baby oil is the BEST way to get pine pitch off of little kids- too, non irritating, and creature friendly )
Peanut butter. Just rub it over the area with a cloth or paper towel and voila! I know it sounds odd, but it works every time.
"Goo Gone" or "Goof Off" will remove it.
Any household oil...good old vegetable oil poured on a clothe that can sit on the sticky spot to saturate it for a minute - then rub right off.
Shot it with a good dose of WD40. This is how grocery stores get tags off products that they resell as told to me by a grocery store manager for nearly 30 years!
I have tried it at home AND it does work!
Good Luck! ""
If the other stuff doesn't work, I'd try cigarette lighter fluid. It's actually pure naphta, the original dry cleaning fluid!. It works on cloth too. Obviously, be carefull because it is very flammable.
Here are the things I tried that you guys suggested for the duct tape removal, baby oil, lighter fluid and wd 40 - no luck! I didn't try the vegetable oil or peanut butter.
Here is your solution:
Nail Polish Remover
Easy, hardly any elbow grease was used. Works Beautifully, don't bother with anything else. Trust me!
DONT DO THAT!!!! Acetone will dissolve the paint!
Try using lighter fluid on a soft tag. Then use a wet sponge to remove lighter fluid.
