Saturate it with water then use a plastic scraper to peel off the rubber. If any is left over, use Goo Gone to remove it.

Scrape if off with a putty knife. Sometimes you can soften it with a blow dryer.

Like mentioned above, heating it up a bit with a blow dryer sounds seems like the right thing to try. Then use a plastic scraper or putty knife.

Normally, I would recommend a razor blade scraper but those also great for removing paint!

I used baby oil, let it sit for 15 min, worked like a charm.

Use ice to freeze it and scrape off with a putty knife.
